TRIBAL examines Indigenous crime stories based on real world cases including mistaken identity, police corruption, restorative justice, healing lodges, railroad blockades and Missing and Murdered Indigenous women.
In an effort to protect themselves from media backlash, the Justice Department forms a task force to investigate the largest scandal in the city’s history, a tomb full of murdered Indigenous bodies. Crime continues to escalate while Sam and Buke try to uncover who’s responsible for the tomb. A white poacher is found hanged on a reserve, an Indigenous teen goes missing following a protest at a rail blockade, and a vigilante group forms to fight back against police violence. The traumatic effects from the discovery of the tomb and the memory of Buke’s shooting collide, affecting Sam and Buke’s relationship and putting the future of the Tribal partnership in jeopardy.
