Tanana Chiefs Conference


Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC) organized as Dena’ Nena’ Henash or “Our Land Speaks,” an Alaska Native non-profit corporation charged with advancing Tribal self-determination and enhancing regional Native unity. While Tanana Chiefs Conference was not officially formed until 1962, in 1915 tribal Chiefs from throughout the region banded together to protect their native land rights, an issue that continued after Alaska’s statehood in 1959 and is still relevant today.
