Deline Got’ine Government, NT
Tim Tutcho is the Communications Officer for the Deline Got’ine Government, a combined Indigenous/public government that is Treaty-based with self-governing authorities. But unlike other self-governments, it represents and serves not only Deline First Nation Citizens, but all residents of Deline.
In 2010, Tim interned for the IT Department with Deline Land Corporation, where he began his specialization in IT and network design. After 2015, Deline received royal consent to finalize the self-government agreement, and then, the Deline Land Corporation was consolidated into the Deline Got’ine Government in September 2016.
It was in this capacity that Tim designed the Deline network infrastructure for the community government, in preparation for future technologies while adapting for today’s modern infrastructure. Soon afterward, his expanding career in IT services allowed Tim to begin work as Communications Officer and starting the initiative to set goals for Deline to get off diesel in the future.
