The Douglas Indian Association will hold its annual tribal council elections Wednesday to fill five seats.
“We have five seats open,” Loretta “Betty” Marvin said Tuesday. “Elections are tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.”
The elections are held each year in January. This year, eight candidates have been certified by the superintendent of elections for eligibility: Kevin Allen, Chris C. Coronell, John Morris Sr., Barbara Cadiente-Nelson, Joseph P. Owen, Robert Paulo, Norman Sarabia and Darryl J. Williams.
Voting for members of the DIA will be held at 811 W. Twelfth St.
The Douglas Indian Association represents members of the T’aaku Kwáan and A’akw Kwáan clans in Douglas and Juneau, according to their website. The DIA has been federally recognized since since 1934.
