​Four indigenous teenagers in rural Oklahoma lie, cheat and steal in an attempt to make their way to the magical land of California in FX’s Reservation Dogs.

Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai) is pretty sure he was born to be a warrior and a leader even though he’s not good at fighting and no one really considers him the leader of anything. Elora Danan (Devery Jacobs) is focused on getting to California as a way to honor their fallen friend Daniel. Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis) keeps the group together with her empathy and street smarts and Cheese (Lane Factor) is the faithful follower.

The series was filmed on location in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, with every writer, director and series regular on the show indigenous.
