Clarence Papequash, a band councillor on the Key First Nation in Saskatchewan who was accused of selling drugs, has pleaded guilty to two charges.
Papequash, 64, was in Yorkton provincial court on Monday where he entered his plea to counts of possession of codeine for the purpose of trafficking and possession of ammunition while prohibited.
He will face a sentencing hearing on April 24.
Mounties executed a search warrant last month at a home on the reserve east of Saskatoon and Papequash was suspended as a councillor by the chief after charges were laid.
Papequash resigned as chief of the band in 2014 when he was given a six-month conditional sentence for selling a morphine pill to a man working for the RCMP.
Following his release on bail in February, Papequash told a reporter that he had recently been battling addiction.
Key First Nation is approximately 335 kilometres east of Saskatoon.
