Reservation Dogs has a native main cast
Reservation Dogs has a cast in which every series regular is Indigenous, as are every writer and director working on the series. The show stars D’PHaraoh Woon-A-Tai, Devery Jacobs, Paulina Alexis and Lane Factor. Elva Guerra, Sarah Podemski, Zahn McClarnon and Dallas Goldtooth also feature in supporting roles.
“You can’t go to Hollywood to cast a show like this,” Harpo said of the show’s cast, via NPR. ” [Native actors usually] play, like, a dead Indian in front of a teepee every 5 to 10 years, you know? So there is not a large pool of native actors in Los Angeles. So we went to communities and shouted out to Angelique Midthunder, who was our casting director. She came in and we went to different communities and we also received recordings from the communities, but it was important that they were from an indigenous community. »
Harjo added, “It wasn’t unnecessarily unorthodox for me, because I’ve been doing these films for so long, and I know there’s talent out there. There are simply no opportunities for Indigenous actors to know there is an opportunity to be in a film. »
Per FX, the half-hour comedy series follows the exploits of “four native teenagers from rural Oklahoma who rob, steal and save their way to the exotic, mysterious and faraway country of California.” The indigenous creative team invites audiences into a surprisingly familiar and funny world. »
