Tamara Podemski has been cast in a recurring role on the second season of ‘Reservation Dogs.’

Tamara Podemski is relocating from the Outer Range to Oklahoma, where she will join the cast of FX’s Reservation Dogs for the eagerly anticipated second season. Podemski will appear as the aunt of Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai) in a three-episode character arc, according to Variety. Her future appearance on the show will provide another opportunity for her and Sterlin Harjo, the show’s co-creator and executive producer, to collaborate.

In the past, the two collaborated on the film Four Sheets to the Wind, in which Podemski starred and received critical acclaim. The film marked Harjo’s debut as a director, earning him the Special Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.

Podemski, a well-known Indigenous actor in Canada and the United States, has long advocated for the inclusion of more Indigenous peoples in cinema and television, particularly in Westerns. Her time on Reservation Dogs will offer even more fantastic acting to the series while keeping up with her commitment of bringing Indigenous stories to the forefront. She now appears as Deputy Sheriff Joy on Prime Video’s Western sci-fi series Outer Range.

The actress told Variety that the Western genre “does not incorporate Indigenous ideals and facts” for the most part, and that she wouldn’t be able to step into such a world, adding, “I’ve been battling too hard in my fight for representation in television and in Hollywood.” This is the job I was born to do.”

With that in mind, her appearance on the second season of Reservation Dogs is sure to be a breath of fresh air. Harjo and his co-creator and executive producer Taika Waititi created the show, which follows a group of four Indigenous teens in Oklahoma. Looking for a way out – especially, to California – the comedy follows the youngsters as they engage in mischief and robberies in order to save money and get to their destination. Devery Jacobs, Paulina Alexis, and Lane Factor co-star alongside Woon-A-Tai.

The series not only tells a story about Indigenous people, but it also has a high degree of Indigenous representation in the cast and crew, with each writer, director, and regular hailing from the Indigenous community.

There’s no telling what new heights an award-winning show like Reservation Dogs will reach. With a player like Podemski on board, the forthcoming second season is sure to outperform the first. While no date for the show’s next season has been set as of yet, stay tuned to Collider for updates as they become available.
