Lieutenant governor honors Chief John
Lieutenant Governor Loren Leman joined the friends and family of Chief Peter John in Minto on Aug. 13 to honor the life and history of the 102-year-old Athabascan traditional chief.
John was born on Oct. 15, 1900, and was a self-taught and respected leader. John was an outspoken advocate for sobriety within the Alaska Native community and testified for Alaska Native land claims in the 1960s. He was chosen by village elders from across Interior Alaska's Athabascan region to be the new traditional chief in 1992.
