Mohawk Girls is a comedic look at the lives of four modern-day women trying to stay true to their roots as they attempt to forge their own identity in a small town where they battle cultural traditions. This dramedy series follows the journey of these 20-something women towards finding love and uncovering their sexuality while looking for acceptance within their community. Bailey wants to be the “perfect” Mohawk, but she’s ready to see what life beyond the “rez” feels like. Caitlin craves love from all the wrong men, including her absent dad and bad-boy boyfriend. Type-A Zoe is driven by the need to succeed while serving her community, but she’s got a secret, kinky, side to her. Anna, the newcomer to the “rez”, has a Mohawk father and a white mother and is having a hard time figuring out the rules in Kahnawake.
The dynamic cast of four leading women includes returning cast members Jenny Pudavick (Bailey), Brittany LeBorgne (Zoe), Heather White (Caitlin), and Maika Harper (Anna) as well as Meegwun Fairbrother (Butterhead) and Kyle Nobess (Thunder), who will reprise their roles as the men they love.
