Clint Kuzio is Cree from Manitoba, the son of Cliff Kuzio and Vangie Johnston. He is a teacher, lawyer and former public servant with the BC Ministry of Health.

Clint has spent his entire career working to improve the lives of Indigenous peoples and communities. As an alumni of UVic’s School of Law, Clint is excited to be back on campus working with the team at the First Peoples House and supporting Indigenous students on their educational journey. He is also teaching some Indigenous Studies courses this term.

In his free time, Clint spends as much time as possible with his wife Ilka Thiessen, who he’s been with since 1991, planning the revolution or out walking with their dog, Finn.
