Starz has released the first official photo of Native American characters who will play an important part in season 4 of Outlander.

The photo features five of the men gathered in the woods for a scene in the upcoming season, which is based on the fourth book in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, Drums of Autumn. Radio Times reports that more than 100 First Nation Canadians traveled to Scotland to fill the myriad Native American roles.

"Every department, from production design to costume and hair and makeup does a huge amount of research to ensure we create a world that feels authentic to the time and place," executive producer Matthew B. Roberts told the outlet. "To build our Native American world, they have learned traditional techniques, from canoe building to hand weaving and, to populate that world, we have welcomed a great team from Canada to play both the speaking and supporting roles of the Cherokee and Mohawk Nations in Outlander season four."

The action in season 4 takes place in North Carolina. Parts of Scotland double for the state back in the 1800s.

Droughtlander ends in November.
