From 'Reservation Dogs' to 'Rutherford Falls,' Native people are having a moment on TV

From CNN | Entertainment by Harmeet Kaur, CNN

When the character Bear is visited by the spirit of an unknown warrior in the series premiere of "Reservation Dogs," he asks if the man before him is "Crazy Horse" or another legendary Native American leader.

It turns out, however, that the man in the beads and feathers is not the kind of brave or formidable Native hero long romanticized in Hollywood. The unknown warrior instead departed this earth in a most anticlimactic fashion -- his horse tripped over a gopher hole and squashed him dead before the battle even started.
