Shawn Atleo, National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, will be in Behchoko, N.W.T. today.
Atleo plans to speak with high school students at Chief Jimmy Bruneau School. He's known for encouraging education among first nations communities across Canada.
Tlicho Grand Chief Eddie Erasmus says he hopes the visit will be a learning opportunity for youth.
"Hopefully the community will learn about what he does, especially our young people," he said. "We don't get to see the National chief of the Assembly of First Nations every day."
Atleo will also meet with the Tlicho chiefs and attend a community feast. Later this week, he'll make his way to Fort Simpson for a Dene leadership meeting.
