Daphie Pooyak.

Daphie Pooyak is a Nakota-Cree woman from the Sweetgrass First Nation. She is a traditional teacher, gatherer and sharer of First Nation knowledge whose stories are about finding our place in creation as human beings. 

In her village, there is a family that has passed down the story of the Cree first contact with Norse people dating back to the 900’s AD. As a keeper of her peoples ceremonies and oral traditions, Daphie was gifted this story to share along with many others regarding the history of her people and the many lessons we as human beings have to learn.

In her professional life Daphie is a cultural leader traveling across Canada to many First Nations events and gatherings where she is featured as a story teller and ceremonial woman.

Daphie is also youth worker who leads summer camps on traditional knowledge and skills for youth across Canada’s Cree reserves; as well as working with the Canadian juvenile prison system in offering cultural wisdom to incarcerated youths as part of their rehabilitation.

Daphie will be sharing her story of the ‘Norse First Contact’ here in the Twin Cities, at Paganicon.

Paganicon would like to thank Daughters and Sons of Yta for sponsoring Daphie’s appearance at Paganicon.
