As many Indigenous people are today, Dickie Yuzicapi comes from a culturally diverse heritage. His heritage represents many of the Plains cultures found in Saskatchewan to this day: Ojibwa, Cree, Métis and Dakota. For over 40 years he has been singing and dancing as a traditional dancer within the Pow Wow circuit. Dickie performs from the heart. He sings to honour the cultures and the people from within those cultures. His original compositions, along with a striking voice enable him to embellish the historical songs of Indigenous cultures by using a blend of traditional instrumentation and contemporary performance. Recently, Dickie has also started playing, composing and carving the Indigenous flute. As a storyteller, Dickie recalls the stories impressed on him as a child, featuring creation, historical and comedic stories for all ages. His intention is to preserve and share his culture as was taught to him by his great-grandparents, who never went to residential school, and were raised pre-reservation style. Dickie reflects the Indigenous philosophy and culture which continues to have a profound effect on the world today. Professionally, Dickie Yuzicapi is the chef and owner of the Sioux Chef Catering Company for the last 20 years. He caters to all types of large and small events across Canada and the world.
