    Ep58: The Disappearance of Tiffany Reid ~ With Deiandra Reid

    Ep58: The Disappearance of Tiffany Reid ~ With Deiandra Reid

    Tiffany Reid is STILL MISSINGAccording to reports, Tiffany was last seen on her way to classes at Shiprock Northwest High School in Shiprock, New Mexico at 8:20 a.m. on May 17, 2004. However, she never arrived at school and has not been heard from since. At the time, she was carrying a black backpack and a purse with her nickname, Kay-C, printed on it. It is worth noting that her mother did not report her missing until a week later, as Tiffany had a history of running away from home and usually returned on her own. Additionally, it was not uncommon for her to not come home directly after school, but she would always stay in touch with her loved ones through phone calls.
    It is believed that Tiffany left of her own accord. Following her disappearance, her makeup bag was found at a well-known party area near Sweetwater, Arizona, at the base of the Carrizo Mountains. Several items of clothing were also discovered in the vicinity, but they could not be positively identified as belonging to Tiffany. It is possible that she may still be in the Shiprock or Sweetwater areas, or she could have traveled to Arizona or Mexico.
    If you know anything, please contact Shiprock Police Department 505-368-1350

    Ep57: The 'White Van Syndrome', Attack on Indigenous in the U.S. ~ Reva Stewart

    Ep57: The 'White Van Syndrome', Attack on Indigenous in the U.S. ~ Reva Stewart

    Fake Rehabs Are Stealing our Loved Ones!Hello My HOMkins, I have come across a disturbing trend that needs to be brought to light. The sight of white vans is enough to send shivers down the spines on their intentions. These fake rehab homes are taking advantage of our Native American community, preying on those struggling with addiction and mental health issues. They lure them in with false promises of healing and high-quality treatment, only to rip them away from their tribe and loved ones. The result? Missing and murdered indigenous individuals.

    I recently had the honor of speaking with Reva Stewart from Stolen People Stolen Benefits and Turtle Island Women Warriors, two organizations working tirelessly to bring justice to our community. Reva's dedication to this cause has earned her a nomination for the prestigious USA TODAY Women of the Year program. This program recognizes the outstanding contributions made by women to their communities and our country as a whole. It began in 2022 as a continuation of the Women of the Century initiative, which commemorated the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage.

    It's time to shed light on this heartbreaking issue and honor the brave women like Reva who are fighting for justice. Let's come together as a community and support Reva and other women making a difference in the lives of Native Americans. Together, we can bring an end to this exploitative trend and ensure a better future for our people.

    Ep54: Ohkomi Forensics on Indigenous DNA ~ Haley Omeasoo

    What is Ohkomi Forensics?
    I am honored to speak with Haley Omeasoo, Director of Ohkomi Forensics. A Native-owned forensic nonprofit, that supports families of missing and murdered indigenous people (MMIP). Haley Omeasoo is a forensic anthropologist who specializes in assisting the families of missing and murdered Indigenous individuals. She was motivated to pursue this career path due to her personal experiences and the lack of resources available for Indigenous communities. Omeasoo's work involves identifying human remains, providing closure for families, and advocating for justice and awareness surrounding these cases. Her dedication to helping those affected by these tragedies highlights the importance of representation and support for marginalized communities in the field of forensics.
