Over the years the comics medium has delivered a diverse but stereotypical sampling of minority characters. This article attempts to provide a usable list of Native American superheroes. For a brief history of stereotypical depictions of Native American characters in comics see the ethnic stereotypes in comics article.

This page focuses exclusively on documenting the history of the Native American super hero whether they are indigenous to North, South, or Central America; the Caribbean; or are of Native American descent. It will hopefully provide a somewhat comprehensive listing across many companies and many media including print, the web, television, and movies. While it may appear to focus mainly on the Native American experience in the U.S., other visions are welcome.
