Recap of Reservation Dogs Season 1

Recap of Reservation Dogs Season 1

Reservation Dogs was created by Taika Waititi and Sterlin Harjo. It follows four Indigenous teens, Elora (Devery Jacques), Bear (D’Pharaoh Won-A-Tai), Willie Jack, Paulina Alexis, and Cheese (Lane Factor), all of whom live on an Oklahoma reservation. They are troublemakers but have heart of gold. They are passionate about their community, and the friends and family they have. It has been one year since Daniel ( Dalton Cramer) died. They want to pay tribute to him by pursuing his dream of moving to California. They must first get the money to move and clear up any lingering issues at home.

They take a chip delivery truck and drive the truck to a salvage yard. They sell the truck to Kenny Boy ( Kirk Fox), but they keep the chips for Bear’s yard and charge 50 cents each. Officer Big ( Zahn Mclarnon), who is a light horseman stops by to ask them about the stolen chiptruck. However, the group denies knowing anything. Officer Big mentions other crimes in the town, including graffiti and taking copper out streetlamps. These are all minor crimes that were committed by the group.

NDN Mafia, which includes Jackie ( Elva Guerra), Bone Thug Dog( Jude Barnett), Weeze [ Xavier Bigpond] and White Steve ( Jack Maricle] drive up to toss paintballs at them to claim the street for theirs. Bear falls unconscious after one of their blasts. Bear meets William Knifeman ( Dallas Goldtooth), an Indigenous spirit who was present at the Battle of Little Horn. He was not killed in battle but was instead crushed by his horse. He enjoys joking around but William Knifeman gives Bear valuable life advice before he awakes.

It all began with the Gang Stealing a Truck of Chips

In the first episode, viewers are plunged into one of the “Reservation Dogs’ most significant thefts: the transport truck containing Flaming Flamers chip. Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon’A-Tai), Elora Daan Postoak(Devery Jacobs), Willie Jack, Paulina Alexis and Cheese (Lane Factor), have been the most prolific thieves on the reservation. They rob everything and anything to sell to the “Meth Heads”, led by Kenny Boy and Kenny Cardarople. They want to flee their life on the reservation and move to California. They grieve the loss of Daniel and Big (Zahn Mclarnon), is their only hope.

The Indian Mafia

The Indian Mafia

The Indian Mafia, a rival gang, begins to stalk “The Reservation Dogs”, named by Mose (Lil Mike), and Mekko (“Funny Bone”) respectively. After an ambush with paintballs, Bear falls asleep and is redirected by a Spirit (Dallas Goldtooth), who tells him to use the influence of his crew for good rather than ruining people’s lives like the truck driver. Bear is also told by the Spirit that he was at the Battle of Little Bighorn. However, he didn’t kill General Custer. Instead, his horse fell into a hole and the spirit succumbed to the crushing weight of the horse.

Later, while the foursome is enjoying catfish, the driver describes how the truck theft has affected his life. Bear awakens and tells his friends of the vision. Elora later brings her share of the money to Bear and they attempt to buy the truck back. But, all that is left are the bottom platform as well as the wheels.

The NDN Clinic

The NDN Clinic

Jackie Guerrera, a rival gang leader, tracks Bear down and beats him. He is sent away with a bloody nose. He is accompanied by Willie, Elora, and Cheese to the NDN clinic. Cheese wanders off in search of candy, while Willie sells Willie’s homemade meat pie, and Cheese gets sucked into an examination. After his test, he puts on glasses to protect his dilate pupils and runs to his grandma at the hospital. Later, he takes her outside to get fresh air.

Elora visits the clinic when her stomach hurts. The same doctor who examined Cheese’s eyes also consults her. Elora is told by Dr. Kang that her stomach is likely inflamed from eating too many spicy chips. The clinic also employs Bear’s mom Rita (Sarah Podemski). Since Bear separated from her father, both Big the doctor and Big the policeman have their eyes on her. After hearing about Bear’s first fight she rushes out of the clinic in order to stop another skirm when the Indian Mafia arrives at the clinic to confront Bear and Co.

Change your mindset

Change your mindset

Although the friend group shares a deep love, the viewer can see their priorities shifting throughout the season. Despite their determination to raise money for the move to California, doubts begin to surface as they get closer. Halfway through the season Bear spends his California fund on Punkin’ Lusty ( Sten Joddi ). Bear commissions Auntie B ( Kimberly Guerrero), a medallion in the form of a microphone. However, it accidentally looks like a body part. Elora is unhappy that Bear would spend their money on a gift. Bear however is hopeful that they will be able quickly make up the difference. Punkin’ was supposed to be there for the Diabetes Awareness Frybread Feast gig, but he never shows up. Elora is upset by this incident and begins to wonder if her friends really want to move to California. Jackie sends Jackie a text and a strange kinship begins between them.

The tornado that struck the area on the day the group was supposed to depart for California leaves them trapped in a basement of a church with NDN Mafia and the rest of the town. Willie Jack spends some time in the woods with her father and recalls Daniel her cousin. She realizes that California is not something she wants anymore. Cheese soon declares that he’s out, leaving Elora, Bear, and Bear. After everyone has left the basement and the coast is clear, Bear waits on Elora to come pick him up at his driveway. Elora finally decides to pick Jackie up from his driveway and take all of the money they’ve saved for the trip to California.

Jacobs stated to ELLE.com she hopes viewers will see “a wider scope” of her characters’ lives. This could mean that there will be more depictions of teenage life and weekend hangouts. She said that growing up in my neighborhood, weekends were filled with drama, competition, flashiness, flashiness, and snagging. And all the rest of it. “There is so much more to this world than we have ever seen. Season 2 will be a great season. I look forward to seeing more of the town and the wider world these kids live in.

Punkin (Sten Jondi), Bear’s father, is also possible to return. He has been seen in episode 4 of season 1 so far. He’s only seen in Season 1, episode 4. But, will we see him again if there is a Season 2? “I definitely believe we will,” Woon A-Tai stated Television Line. Do I believe Punkin will come to Oklahoma?” “No, I don’t believe so.”
