From co-creators and executive producers Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi, FX’s Reservation Dogs is a landmark half-hour dramedy that follows the exploits of Elora Danan (Devery Jacobs), Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai), Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis) and Cheese (Lane Factor), four Indigenous teenagers in rural Oklahoma. The series also features an extended cast of memorable characters including Spirit (Dallas Goldtooth), tribal officer Big (Zahn McClarnon), cannabis-loving Brownie (Gary Farmer), physics-obsessed Bucky (Wes Studi), the enigmatic Deer Lady (Kaniehtiio Horn) and many, many more.
Filmed on location in Oklahoma, Reservation Dogs is a breakthrough in Indigenous representation on television, both in front of and behind the camera. Every writer, director and series regular on the show is Indigenous. This first-of-its-kind creative team tells a story that resonates with them and their lived experiences.
