Political career[edit]

Blake ran for public office in the 2011 Northwest Territories general election as a candidate in the Mackenzie Delta electoral district. The election was hotly contested due to the opening created by incumbent speaker David Krutko stepping down. Blake defeated four other candidates, including former Northwest Territories Commissioner Glenna Hansen, to win his first term in office.

He has also served as Gwich'in Chief in the community of Tsiigehtchic.
