Created by Sterlin Harjo (Seminole/Muscogee) and Taika (Māori) and featuring an entirely Native cast and crew, the show has been hailed for breaking reductive stereotypes about modern Indigenous life. The New York Times called the series a “coming-of-all-ages masterpiece.”
Leading up to the show’s final episode on Wednesday, September 27, we asked our social media followers to tell us about their favorite episode of ‘Reservation Dogs’ and what the show meant to them. Here’s what they had to say.
The following responses have been published as written.
All astoundingly amazing, but the show whole heatedly grabbed deep when all the ancestors showed up and let The Willie Jack character know they were with her, right there, always.
One of the executive producers is a former student of mine and I am so proud of him for using his many talents and experiences in this fabulous series. Way to represent Migizi!!
I don’t want it to end
Love this show, please announce this next ----> *Reservation Dogs* Motion Picture*
Already??? It just started!! Seasons are so short, I wish there were 20 episodes like the old days. This whole season has been the best so far, I’m sad to see it end! Hard to pick a favorite!
When they go deer hunting & Willie Jack gets her buck.
When the uncles took Cheese camping.

All of them, love this show so much truth
It was great for a few short seasons how the natives across Turtle Island in general were all the same. These series made us realize we’re relatable. Hope there come up with other native scripted series. Thank you to the Rez Dog producers!

I don’t have the show titles memorized. I like the Scooby Doo governor/catfish show and I liked the prison show where Willie Jack learned to pray.
Not an episode, but the whole “Mom, the Deer Lady DID drive me home, I swear” thing from Bear. My goodness that was precious.
I can’t choose. All brilliant.
