Regional Chief Kluane Adamek (Aagé)

Assembly of First Nations, Yukon Regional Chief

Regional Chief Kluane Adamek (Aagé) is a proud northerner and citizen of Kluane First Nation, and honours the Matriarchs who have welcomed her into the Dakl’aweidi (Killer whale) Clan. Kluane is a First Nation woman with mixed Tlingit, Southern Tutchone, and settler Canadian ancestry, and is a proud mother to her daughter, Tayāna Copper-Jane.

She has served as the Assembly of First Nation (AFN) Yukon Regional Chief since January 2018. As Regional Chief, Kluane consistently presses for change in the ways that women, young people, and the next generation are included and empowered in decision-making forums, and she is committed to approaching her own leadership journey in a way that reflects her inner-most values as a Yukon First Nation woman. Kluane is deeply committed to advancing the interests of the 14 Yukon First Nations and works closely with Chiefs and citizens to advance their priorities and interests, both regionally and nationally.

In 2019, Kluane completed her Master of Business Administration at Simon Fraser University where she further expanded her governance and leadership experience. She is enriched and inspired daily by the Matriarchs, Elders, and youth who guide her work and the future of Yukon First Nations and her passions remain closely connected to working with First Nations youth, education, economic development, and governance.
