Dakira Cultural Coordinator
Ikbale Bouziane, Dakira Cultural Coordinator
Ikbale Bouziane joined the High Atlas Foundation team in January 2022 as a Cultural Field Coordinator for the USAID Religious and Ethnic Minorities Activity (REMA). She is heavily committed to understanding Morocco’s colorful human mosaic and strives to comprehend the life experiences of previous generations whose stories formulate history and shape the Moroccan cultural identity. Ikbale is a Ph.D. student investigating Jewish and Muslim cultural encounters in southeast Morocco through a study of Amazigh oral tradition. Her interest in this topic was inspired by her deep desire to preserve cultural heritage through its celebration and to inspire others to do the same.
