Join Native New Online Publisher Levi Rickert this Friday as he interviews Reservation Dogs set decorator Tafv Sampson. Tafv has worked in the film industry since 2011 and is the granddaughter of the late Muscogee actor and founder of the American Indian Registry for the Performing Arts.

In decorating the set for Reservation Dogs, Tafv was inspired to make the show as meaningful for the community as possible. She collaborated with local artists to dress the sets with loaned, emotionally significant objects, such as iconic Native activist and actress Casey Camp-Horinek’s shawl, which she wore to Wounded Knee protests in her youth She also worked to nail the cultural specificity of the home of the character “Maximus, played by Graham Greene, in episode 302, and the 1940s India Boarding School world of episode 304.
