Dominic Frederick


Chief Dominic Frederick

My name is Dominic Frederick, but most people call me Domo. Born and raised in Lhezbaonichek Miworth, I am Carrier and have always lived amongst our people.

I was elected Chief of the Lheidli T'enneh in March 2004. I have been working with our councillors and staff most diligently on a number of things. We would like to improve the way of life for our community and make ourselves more accessible to the membership. We would like to gain a better understanding of our organization and how we do business with the government and other Nations. Our long term goal is to prepare our kids and their kids on how to sustain themselves and be successful in the future.
