Clint Kuzio

Clinton Kuzio is Cree and a member of Fisher River Cree Nation (he reminds us that band membership is not equal to ethnicity, hence the mention of both). He grew up in Cranberry Portage where his parents, Vangie and Cliff, taught him how to hunt, fish and trap as a child and also gave him a curiosity about settlers, teaching him how to borrow from settler culture without becoming assimilated. This led to becoming a teacher and lawyer, working primarily in colonial institutions and learning how settler-colonial society and whiteness needs to be navigated cautiously. Clint has a passion for justice and anti-racism, and works towards these in his committee work with the BC Human Rights Tribunal, his job as Director of Indigenous Relations & Program Development with the Victoria Cool Aid Society, and in facilitating anti-racism workshops in his free time. Prior to joining the Victoria Cool Aid Society Clint worked at the University of Victoria as Community Engagement Manager with the team at the First Peoples House, and is a former Director of Indigenous Health Governance with the BC Ministry of Health.
