In Brandi Morin’s case, this description is a visceral account of being on the front lines of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls crisis. Morin is a survivor of a dysfunctional system that saw her living on the street and in various foster care institutions. As a result, she fell victim to predatory men and an abusive lifestyle where she could have ended up being just another statistic.
Thankfully, Brandi Morin turned a corner and found solace in telling the stories of those who have been persecuted by an oppressive system.
Today, Brandi Morin is an acclaimed journalist who has just published a memoir chronicling her surfacing, after being drowned in a deep pool of adversity. The book is entitled Our Voice of Fire, and Morin joined CKUA’s Tony King to discuss her literary work on Thoroughfare.
