Join EPIP LA for a new series on Native and Indigenous Communities! We'll kick things off with a group screening of "Reservation Dogs," an Indigenous American teen comedy-drama. Together we will watch episode 1 (approx. 30 mins) and have the second half for open Q&A to discuss our reflections together and learn more about our Native and Indigenous communities.
From Co-Creators and Executive Producers Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi, "Reservation Dogs" is a half-hour comedy that 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. Filmed on location in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, "Reservation Dogs" is a breakthrough in Indigenous representation on television both in front of and behind the camera. Every writer, director and series regular on the show is Indigenous. This first-of-its-kind creative team tells a story that resonates with them and their lived experiences – and invites audiences into a surprisingly familiar and funny world.
This is the first event within a four-part series centered on uplifting and honoring Native and Indigenous communities that are a part of and reside on ancestral Tongva homelands also known as Los Angeles. Stay tuned for more details on our plans ahead, which will include a deep-dive on Native/Indigenous histories, a conversation with Native/Indigenous leaders in Los Angeles, and a virtual museum tour at La Plaza De Cultura Y Arte.
