As many Indigenous people are today, Dickie Yuzicapi comes from a culturally diverse heritage. His heritage represents the majority of the Plains cultures found in Saskatchewan to this day: Ojibway, Cree, Métis, and Dakota. Dickie is unique in that he was raised by his great grandparents who never went to residential school. They raised him pre-reservation style until it was his turn to go to residential school. Dickie is a residential school survivor, and a multigenerational trauma survivor. He is a master storyteller and experienced speaker who can provide his own ancestral context and historical connections in ways that bring the Truth and Reconciliation recommendations to practical reality. His workshops are led with great care to his family’s stories and to where workshop participants are at in the T & R process. It is about creating understanding with care to lay the groundwork for what needs to be done to heal. Dickie is experienced in leading workshops, speaking to groups of all sizes, and keynote addresses. Dickie is also a traditional Pow wow dancer and singer, an artist, a storyteller, a Red Seal Chef, and the owner of Sioux Chef Catering.
