It could be through discussion about town land rights, or by looking at the items in Reagan’s Minishonka Cultural Center. 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 CelebHomes News, including how many Native Americans struggle to find a balance between traditional practices and modern-day life. 

His comments were continued by “It’s such an amazing way to be exposed to these stories and have them be seen through a contemporary lens. It is not monolithic in the way that you see all of the voices and how many stories are being told, but it does allow for one to get a sense of how diverse they are. This is a very special event and I feel really fortunate to have been able to participate in it.”

Season 2 of Rutherford Falls premieres June 16 on Peacock.
