Set in a rural reservation town, Missing Indigenous begins as two detectives, played by Solomon Trimble (Sam Uley of Twilight), and Isaac Trimble (Producer) investigate the homicide of a young woman marked with a killer’s deadly signature. With the assistance of entomologist Brett Rivers, played by actor David Velarde, the detectives soon realize Brett may have a lead on this murderer’s lethal trademark. Taking them on a mysterious journey through the dense forests of the reservation, the detectives are soon on the trail of an elusive, faceless killer. What unfolds is a heart wrenching story of a silent epidemic, the disappearance of Native American and Indigenous women.

Director Bio:
LaRonn Katchia is a 27 year-old tribal member of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation and is currently pursuing a passionate fillmaking career in Portland, OR. LaRonn grew up on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation and has lived there for 18 years of his life transitioning to the city of Portland for film school. His love and passion for film resides from the influence of the commonly mistreated portrayal of Native Americans in Hollywood films today.


"My mission is to change the Native stereotypes of film and get it right this time. The Native American perspective is what's missing in Hollywood today and needs to be brought to light. There are too many untouched original stories waiting to be filmed, and that being filmed by a Native American director."
