Jerry Asp has begun proceedings to sell the land of the Tahltan Nation so that he may make money will the Tahltan People are poisoned and further dispossesed of control over their lives and their Nation.
In an unprecedented move, 35 Tahltan elders took over the band office on January 17, 2005. This day will go down in Tahltan history as the day the Elders took back their power. Elders have played a very marginal role in band, nation and corporate decision-making.
The Tahltan elders are demanding the resignation of the Indian Act Chief J. Asp. In their words they have fired the past Chief. One elder says, "He has done enough harm to our People, and puts us in danger of losing everything."
