Historian's Take

What We Can Learn From These Native American Comedies

Episode 5 | 9m 39s

Loading Player...

Native American representation in film and TV used to be confined to Westerns and storylines of defeat. Today, a new wave of Native American comedies, written and created by Native peoples, are taking back their narratives. Shows like Reservation Dogs and Rutherford Falls challenge stereotypes and address big political movements like #LandBack.
