Captain Kevin Seesequasis 

 

Captain Kevin Seesequasis (c-se-kway-sis) is of Cree ancestry originally from the Beardy’s & Okemasis First

on October 30, 2002 and after completion of the Basic Officer Qualification course at Regional Cadet
Instructor School (Prairie), was commissioned as a Cadet Instructor Cadre Officer on June 1 , 2003.


Kevin became involved with Royal Canadian Army Cadets in September of 1997 with 390 Royal Canadian Army
Cadet Corps in Prince Albert, SK. He was fortunate to participate in the Army Cadet Exchange programme
where he toured famous landmarks in and around Washington, DC. In March 2000, he was again selected to
attend an expedition, this time- hiking, white water rafting, and exploring the rich culture along the eastern
coastal state of Veracruz, Mexico. By the end of his time with cadets, Cadet Seesequasis had been promoted to
the rank of Cadet Chief Warrant Officer, had been appointed Master Cadet and was the Regimental Sergeant
Major of his Cadet Corps, the highest appointments available to any army cadet. He was awarded the Royal
Canadian Legion Cadet Medal of Excellence, the Lord Strathcona Medal, and the Army Cadet Service Medal
for his 5 years of dedicated service.

After completion of his Cadet Service and upon his enrolment into the Canadian Forces, Officer Cadet
Seesequasis assumed responsibility as the Chief Training Officer with the corps. His efforts in Prince Albert
resulted in the corps being awarded “Most Improved Corps” in the 2003/2004 Training Year. In August 2004,
Lt Seesequasis applied for and was selected as the Area Cadet Advisor (Land) at Regional Cadet Support Unit
(Prairie) Detachment Regina. There, he was responsible for the oversight and developmental assistance of
Cadet training in all 16 Army Cadet Corps in Saskatchewan. He is also credited for the development and
implementation of Exercise “Intrepid Adventure”, the largest and most successful concentration of Adventure
Training specifically designed for Green and Red Star cadets in the province.

Upon leaving the RCSU, Capt Seesequasis served with 2293 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps in Saskatoon,
SK. He was highly instrumental in the growth of that corps from 60 cadets to its current 140 members and the
formation of its satellite corps in the core neighbourhoods serving Saskatoon’s Aboriginal community. Kevin
also successfully developed, applied for and was awarded a grant from the Dakota Dunes Community
Development Corporation for $15,000.00 to assist the corps Biathlon, Band, Drill and Marksmanship programs.

Capt Seesequasis was promoted to his current rank in Mar 2009. He has acquired significant experience in the
Public Affairs, Fund Development, Project Management and Strategic Planning fields. He plans to continue a
Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Studies at the Grant MacEwan Community College in the fall of 2009.

Kevin wishes he had spare time but has indicated that he likes to run, participate in adventure activities,
enjoys photography and likes to spend time with friends and family and his two cats, Raisins and Truffles.
