Joe Pastion beat out four other candidates Tuesday to become Chief of the Dene Tha' First Nation in northern Alberta.
Pastion takes over from James Ahnassay, who served a total of 16 years as Chief.
Pastion says he has a good relationship with the Dene in the Northwest Territories, through his 13 years working for the band and plans to continue that work.
This is Pastion's first time serving as Chief.
