Holly Rae Yuzicapi

Holly Rae Yuzicapi is a proud Dakota/Lakota woman from the Standing Buffalo Dakota Nation in Southern Saskatchewan. Growing up in a Dakota family, Holly has learned a lot about the elements of a traditional lifestyle. She is a Cultural Arts instructor that has travelled across Canada delivering sessions to all ages. Holly has done a lot of youth engagement and has a passion for helping youth make stronger cultural connections. She has a strong belief that traditional cultural experiences will share the history of First Nations people and believes cultural arts engagement can create a strong sense of identity and confidence for young people. Holly also believes that creating unique common cultural sharing opportunities will help create a strong foundation for building relationships. As a former Cultural Arts Consultant with the First Nation, Metis and Inuit Education unit with Edmonton Public Schools, Holly has travelled to many schools facilitating over 2000 individual presentations to over 7000 students on topics such as Introduction to Culture, Traditional Foods, Cultural Arts, Traditional Games and Design and Identity. These visits have been well received in schools and have also been featured on CTV Edmonton and in the Alberta Teachers Association newsletter. Holly has been providing professional learning sessions for educators for over 3 years. Hosting different topics to help educators become more culturally engaged in the classroom from a First Nations, Metis and Inuit perspective. Providing First Nation influenced activities to schools and professional learning opportunities for teachers has encouraged positive cultural discussions among students and staff as well as bringing understanding to a foundational level. In her workshops participants have the opportunity to participate in meaningful discussions and interactive activities that can be taken back to use in the classroom.
