I already binged it. I have a soft spot for these kind of shows where Native Americans play major roles.

I liked it because of the characters and the mysticism, but I’m hoping they get a little bit better mystery in season 2.

I just watched the pilot last night. Going to try and watch an episode each night if I have time. I have huge soft spot as well. My uncle owned a Native American Art Gallery and dealt exclusively with Native American artists for over 40 years. When I as a kid in Cali he would take me to celebrations he was invited to or Native American Art shows. I met Iron Eyes Cody (have his autograph somewhere) which is ironic considering he was just an actor playing an Indian but made appearances all the time at those shows. Then many years later Wes Studi I think before he did Dances with Wolves or maybe it was around that time. I don't recall.

P.S. Funny story, I saw West Studi again when I was on a work lunch at Cheesecake Factory of all places several years ago. I debated walking over to him to say we met once before (not like he would have remembered me) but it looked like a work lunch with an agent or something. I didn't want to bother him.

I've lived out there. No one's truck is ever that clean. The red mud is on virtually everything. Even your tortillas have a thin layer of dust on them
