AMC’s new television series “Dark Winds” is a thriller set in the 1970s on the Navajo Nation and the production is filled with Native talent. Showrunner Graham Roland (Chickasaw) and veteran director Chris Eyre (Cheyenne and Arapaho) are getting big name production credentials from Robert Redford and George R.R. Martin. They’re also navigating some touchy source material from non-Native author Tony Hillerman’s Leaphorn and Chee murder mystery novels. Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce hears from those involved in the series about what adapting the work was like and their experiences on the set with writers Billy Luther (Navajo, Hopi, and Laguna Pueblo) and Razelle Benally (Oglala Lakota and Diné) – and actors Eugene Brave Rock (Blackfeet) and Kiowa Gordon (Hualapai).
