Denakkanaaga Elders and Youth Conference and Annual Meeting
June 8 - June 10
The annual Denakkanaaga Elders and Youth Conference will take place on June 8 and 9, 2021
on a virtual basis for those wishing to participate on a remote basis, and in-person for delegates
only at the David Salmon Tribal Hall in Fairbanks. The Denakkanaaga Annual Meeting will
immediately follow the conference on June 10, 2021.
The conference theme is “Becoming Resilient and Speaking Out: On the Journey to Wellness.”
This reflects the ongoing discussion Denakkanaaga has had at its recent conferences on healing
from generational trauma. This summer’s conference will focus on men’s healing, as well as
other important issues facing elders and youth.
This year two elders will be elected to the Denakkanaaga Board of Directors for the Yukon-
Tanana and Kuskokwim subregions, both for three-year terms. Youth delegates will also elect a
youth representative to the Denakkanaaga board for a one-year term.
