Is It Any Good?

This series does a fantastic job of balancing an intriguing mystery with authentic storytelling focused on Indigenous characters. Dark Winds has captivating storytelling, and strong performances by Zahn McClarnon, Kiowa Gordon, and Jessica Matten. Various cast, crew, and writers who are Indigenous were able to bring their own experiences into the series. Once the first episode starts, viewers won't want to look away, but the violence and strong language make this most suitable for older teens to keep watching.
