“We can talk about anything we want and by doing that we’re not saying we’re right. We don’t have to agree. My voice is there and so is theirs,” co-host Beavann Fox told CBC.

Dr. Shauneen Pete is originally from Little Pine Nation. She is an assistant professor in Aboriginal education at the University of Regina. Robyn Morin is Metis and works as a mentor co-ordinator for a non-profit organization. Shannon Fayant is also Metis and works in education. Bevann Fox is originally from the Piapot First Nation and also from The Pasqua First Nation; she is the author of a book called Abstract Love and she facilitates career development and workforce planning.

Topics will include parenting, well-being, women’s issues and Aboriginal women’s issues in Canada. The Four premiered on Jan. 21,  and will air on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. on Access Communications.
