In the quest for historical authenticity, the production sought the input of a women-led racial and social justice organization known as the "IllumiNative," and many native American Pawnee advisers were frequently consulted as fact-checkers throughout the shoot. As an executive producer, Emily Blunt has said that she was deeply honored when the show received a rare stamp of approval from this organization at the official series premiere.
