Chiefs in Manitoba have re-elected Arlen Dumas as the head of the organization representing First Nations in the province.
Dumas won 38 of the 57 votes in the second ballot Wednesday afternoon.
The Cree leader beat out Sheila North, a former grand chief of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak, the advocacy group representing northern First Nations in the province.
Dumas was first elected as grand chief of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs in 2017.
He took a leave of absence two years later after being accused of sending unwanted messages to a woman.
Dumas said at the time that he did not pursue an intimate relationship with the woman, but did message her to provide advice and guidance.
