Greetings to the esteemed members of the Yale First Nation community, it is with a profound sense of gratitude and responsibility that I introduce myself as your newly appointed Chief. My name is Troy Terrance Peters, and I am deeply honored to serve you all. My roots run deep within our community, as my lineage traces back to the heart of Yale First Nation. My mother, Margret Peters, my grandmother, Emily Peters, and my grandfather, Alex Peters, have all been pillars of our community, instilling in me a deep appreciation for our heritage. Throughout my life, I have embraced the values of hard work and an unwavering commitment to our Aboriginal traditions, particularly the cherished practices of hunting and fishing. I believe that these traditions are not only part of our history but also a vital component of our future. As your Chief, my primary goal is to work tirelessly for our community, ensuring that the voices and opinions of each member are not only heard but valued. Family is at the core of our identity, and I bring a profound understanding of its importance, as I am blessed with a Wife of 33 Years and five children and the joy of being a grandparent to one cherished grandchild. I am deeply humbled and honored to serve our Nation, and I am committed to upholding our traditions, preserving our heritage, and advancing the well-being of our people. Together, we will forge a path toward a brighter and more prosperous future for Yale First Nation. Thank you for entrusting me with this privilege.
