Celebrate Indigenous Resilience - Thirty Eight

In memory of my parents and my older brother I am raising awareness about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people while Celebrating  the Resilience of Indigenous Peoples.

100% of the funds raised from this fundraiser will go towards supporting Indigenous women & youth.

My name is Fallon Farinacci, my spirit name is White Thunder Woman. I am a child survivor of MMIWG. At the age of nine, my parents were murdered, while my brothers and I were held hostage for 8 hours, waiting for the RCMP to help. Eleven years later, our family lost my older brother.

At the time of their deaths, my mother was 36, my older brother was 29, and my father was 37 years old. On September 16th, 2021, I will be a day older than my father when he passed away, making me the oldest member of my family.

Instead of being consumed by the grief, sadness and survivor's guilt that day will bring, I am taking hold of that day and celebrating my resiliency.

Through trauma, pain and sadness, I survived. I am here!


Donations will be distributed equally between:

Abbey House Transitional Home for Indigenous women

&

Manitoba Métis Federation, St.Eustache Local to support Indigenous Youth


I am grateful to be here still, celebrating my life and everything I've overcome with all of you.

Marsi (thank you) for your donation & for Celebrating Indigenous Peoples Resilience with me!
