Over the years, Native and Indigenous people have been steadily gaining more deserved exposure in the TV and film industry, and another milestone is about to happen thanks to FX’s Reservation Dogs.
The new FX Original Series is no doubt a breakthrough because every writer, director and series regular on the show is Indigenous. Reservation Dogs premieres its first two episodes Mon Aug 9 streaming exclusively on FX on Hulu. Watch the latest trailer below.
Filmed on location in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, Reservation Dogs is a half-hour comedy co-created by Executive Producers Sterlin Harjo & Taika Waititi. The new series follows the exploits of four Indigenous teenagers in rural Oklahoma who steal, rob and save in order to get to the exotic, mysterious and faraway land of California.
Reservation Dogs has Native rappers, catfish, Indigenous superstitions and spirits both hilarious and terrifying, laughter, tears, unexpected grandmothers, decent people, terrible people and a cavalcade of supporting characters who color and shade this already vibrant world.

The truth about Indian Boarding Schools
This month, we’re asking our readers to help us raise $10,000 to fund our year-long journalism initiative called “The Indian Boarding School Project: A Dark Chapter in History.” Our mission is to shine a light on the dark era of forced assimilation of native American children by the U.S. government and churches. You’ll be able to read stories each week and join us for Livestream events to understand what the Indian Boarding School era has meant to Native Americans — and what it still means today.
This news will be provided free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution of any amount — big or small — gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change. Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous journalism. Thank you.
