The Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (CSTC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Reg Mueller, of Saik’uz First Nation, as the CSTC Deputy Tribal Chief. This appointment is being made due to the success of Tribal Chief Terry Teegee’s bid for the British Columbia Assembly of First Nations Regional Chief.

He has worked for Saik’uz on a number of economic development initiatives, including a logging company and a log building company. Currently Reg Mueller is a member of the Highway 16 Action Plan Advisory Group.

Reg volunteers for a number of initiatives such as First Nations Foster Kids in Care as a “young” Elder, and has worked as a mentor to young First Nations men and women in the trades at the College of New Caledonia’s, Vanderhoof campus. Most recently he has managed the THEO (Transportation and Heavy Equipment Operating) Initiative, delivered through Prince George Aboriginal Employment and Training Association; a program designed to match employers with First Nations Class One Drivers and trained Heavy Equipment Operators.
