…in that good way! — An expression used by the character William Knifeman in the ground breaking series Reservation Dogs.

This series was to First Nation Native Americans in the 2020’s what Roots was to Black Americans in The 1970’s in terms of stellar prime time representation of a major ethnic cast with a positive representation of cultural love; and cultural self-awareness,

A sprit, William Knifeman would appear riding a horse. He is a trickster figure who asks more questions then offering answers; and, he is inevitably at turns both hilarious and heartbreaking.

He once blessed a Sonic tater tot by asking it to protect and nourish the body of the character that was eating it and to help with cholesterol …in that good way.

A most infectious saying!!!!!

This series is perfect for a Sankofa viewing and is best watched in a circle. One you finish all four seasons of Reservation Dogs, immediately watch it again as though you were reading Finnigans Wake.

The story of a people never ends, it continues in a cycle…in that good way.

And representation matters!

You can’t hold in your joy or your pain. You have to offer them both into the circle of your people — all of your relations…in that good way! Then the circle can never be broken. Aho!

Follow any statement with 'in a good way' and it negates the horror, but still allows you to make killer comments.

It means that your acceptable weird. Some people are weird, but it's like dorky weird. People who are weird in a good way are not dorky but they have their own style, they're not scared to be themselves, and they stand out as different in a good way. Overall it's a compliment for the most part.
