I enjoy my role as is allows me to exercise my technical and soft skills for a great purpose in an impactful way.

“Daana Gilpin Sets’edinh, (My name is Daana Gilpin).  I am a member of Tl’etinqox, and grew up there with my family.  I have been with the Tŝilhqot’in National Government since March 2010.  I started out working as Employment Coordinator, and not that long after was asked to take on the Indian Registry Administration.  This experience has provided me with opportunities to meet and work with our own people as well as neighboring community members and staff. The Tŝilhqot’in National Government through their support, and training opportunities, have helped me build a solid skills and network platform. I have grown a lot professionally and personally over the years.”

“In 2017, I became the Executive Assistant for our Tŝilhqot’in Nits’ilʔin (Chiefs).  I have been able to further advance my professional skills and work alongside great leaders. I feel a sense of pride to work for our people, and to be able to offer support between the Tŝilhqot’in National Government and to our six Tŝilhqot’in communities.  I look forward to more learning opportunities, and continued work for our Nation and our Tŝilhqot’in people.”
