Mark Wedge has won a second term as chief of the Carcross/Tagish First Nation.
Wedge was chosen by the six clans of the First Nation.
The clan leaders, or Auxadi, come together and decide who will lead the First Nation for the next four years.
Wedge was chosen by majority on Saturday after a three-hour meeting.
The chief is also referred to as the Kha Shade Heni.
Wedge, a member of the Deisheetaan clan, is the first chief to have led Carcross/Tagish First Nation under the clan system through a full term.
Andy Carvill, now Council of Yukon First Nations grand chief, was the first chief elected under the clan system.
During his first term, Wedge signed and ratified the First Nation’s Final and Self-government agreements.
In 2005, the First Nation ceded the rights to the 10,500-square-kilometre footprint of traditional territory that sits on top of a confirmed oil and gas basin in exchange for 1,561 square kilometres and about $38 million in compensation to be paid out over 15 years.
The First Nation has 602 members, according to the 2001 census.
The clans also appointed several executive council representatives, including Doris Mclean, Danny Cresswell, Cindy Huebschwerelen, Bill Barrett Jr. and George Shepard.
