Yellowknives Dene First Nation voters have re-elected incumbent Edward Sangris for another term as Chief of Dettah.

This will be Sangris’ fourth consecutive term in office, having been first elected to the position in 2007.

Returning officer Lynda Comerford told Cabin Radio Sangris won with 133 votes. Challenger Rachel Crapeau received 106 votes and Bobby Drygeese 105.
