About the Guests
Fallon Farinacci is Red River Métis, and a child survivor, advocate and speaker on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+. She testified in the National Inquiry for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, sharing her own story of loss and trauma. She worked closely with other MMIWG2SLGBTQQIA+ family members and the Commissioners for the National Inquiry through the National Family Advisory Circle. She continues to share her story and bring awareness to the ongoing genocide Indigenous women, girls and Two Spirit folx face in hopes of bringing change and awareness across Turtle Island.
Colleen Whitedeer from Fond Du Lac Denesuline First Nation has been an advocate for Murdered and Missing Indigenous Men since the murder of her eldest brother in the late 1990s and the disappearance of her younger brother Timothy K. Charlette in 2014. In 2015, she spearheaded a walk from Prince Albert to Regina as a way to bring more attention to Missing & Murdered Indigenous Men. She has since completed numerous similar walks and met with various organizations to shed light on Murdered and Missing Indigenous Men.
