Whether it’s through discussions about the town’s land rights or the items displayed in Reagan’s Minishonka Cultural Center, actor Dustin Milligan—who plays Regan’s ex, Josh Carter—said the show emphasizes the importance of presenting Indigenous stories to new audiences.
“There’s a lot of things that are very current about what we talk about on this show,” Milligan told E! News, including how many Native Americans struggle to find a balance between traditional practices and modern-day life.
He continued, “I think it’s just such a wonderful way to be introduced and exposed to these stories, and just have it be seen in a modern current lens and not a monolithic kind of way where you just see how many different voices, how many different stories there are to tell, and still to be told. It’s very unique and it’s something that I think we’re really lucky to be a part of.”
Season two of Rutherford Falls premieres June 16 on Peacock.
