Members of the Caldwell First Nation will vote for a new chief and council Saturday.
The election comes following a forensic audit which found loose financial controls during a 2016 powwow, which resulted in chief Louise Hiller and councillor Lonnie Dodge being removed from their positions by members.
Auditors discovered more than $247,790 in "unsupported" prize payments to drummers and dancers during the two-day event held near Leamington.
A $190,000 contract to livestream the powwow and create a video telling the story of Caldwell also drew scrutiny from auditors who said Dodge signed with Moccasin Media, a company owned by Hillier's son, David, without seeking bids from other companies.
Provincial police launched an investigation into "alleged financial crimes" but determined no charges would be laid.
Members held a general meeting in September 2017 where they voted to remove Hillier and Dodge from their roles. They also decided to attempt to recover $60,000 the audit states was withdrawn by Hillier to pay Moccasin Media and another $55,000 from David.
Less than four months later, both Hillier and Dodge have been nominated as candidates in Saturday's election.
Hillier is vying for a council seat, while Dodge is one of two candidates for chief.
CBC News contacted Dodge and Hillier, but they did not respond to a request for comment.
Mail in votes votes for the election started in early December and an advanced poll was held on Jan. 13.
Members can cast a ballot at the Caldwell First Nation community centre from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and the new council is expected to be announced that night.
