Mohawk Girls Series

Mohawk Girls is a comedic look at the lives of four modern-day women trying to stay true to their roots while they navigate sex, work, love, and the occasional throw down. This is life on the reserve like you’ve never seen it before – modern, tough, and funny. Depicting many of the same conflicts experienced by all Canadian cultures, Mohawk Girls highlights the struggle to find a balance between love, romance and identity on one hand, and preserving a culture on the other. 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. It’s Sex and the City – Mohawk style!
