Reservation Dogs Uses Music to Highlight Its Indigenous Roots — Listen to the Soundtrack
Whether it's characters named for pop culture references or cheekily placed nods to stereotypical Indigenous tropes, FX on Hulu's Reservation Dogs is all about showing the blend between cultures. Outside of homages to films like Platoon, Friday, and Boyz n the Hood, one of the best ways the series shows this blend is through its use of music. Not only are rock legends like The Stooges and contemporary favorites like Broncho heard as Bear and crew do what they can to leave their rural Oklahoma town, Indigenous artists like Link Wray, The Halluci Nation, and Samantha Crain are front and center. The show even includes music from one of the show's stars, Sten Joddi. Ahead, you can check out the soundtrack for yourself.
