How Gabby Petito’s Death Highlights Racial Disparities in Coverage


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Teyana Viscarra, a descendant of Piro-Tiwa Pueblo, Apache and European Ancestry and practices the ceremonial way of life as a PRAYER RUNNER. She is the Founder of Way of the Sacred Mountain whose vision and work is engaged in the longstanding MMIW Crisis through ongoing Prayerful Action.


The outsized media coverage of Gabby Petito’s death in Wyoming has highlighted the public fixation on missing and murdered White women. Indigenous activists for years have been drawing attention to the disproportionate violence facing indigenous women. In Wyoming alone, where Petito’s remains were found, hundreds of indigenous women have gone missing and were found to be murdered over the past decade.

Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
