About the Program
Ages: All ages
The Moose Jaw Public Library invites you to join us as we celebrate Aboriginal Storytelling Month with a special visit from Francis “Dickie” Yuzicapi.
Francis comes from a culturally diverse heritage which represents the majority of the Plains cultures found in Saskatchewan to this day: Ojibway, Cree, Metis, and Dakota. Dickie is unique in that he was raised by his great-grandparents who taught him traditional teachings before attending residential school. Dickie is a Survivor, and a multi-generational trauma Survivor. Dickie is currently the owner and chef of the Sioux Chef Catering Company and consults on all facets of indigenous culture. 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 all participants’ level of Reconciliation. It is about creating understanding with care to lay the groundwork for what needs to be done to heal.
Dickie’s stories will be on cultural sharing. This presentation is appropriate for all ages.
Registration is not required and there is no cost to attend.
This event is sponsored by Library Services for Saskatchewan Aboriginal Peoples Inc.
