Meet Laguna Woman – Native American Comic Book Heroine

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown September 26th, 2013 Last Updated on: September 26th, 2013

The popular webcomic “Super Indian” by Arigon Starr is about to get a female super hero for the very first time – Laguna Woman!

Shayai Lucero from Laguna Pueblo helped the “Super Indian” staff style the character.  You can find Laguna Woman and a cast of other Native American characters by checking out Super Indian Comics.

Creator/Writer/Artist Arigon Starr is a member of the Kickapoo Tribe of Oklahoma and was raised in various cities across the U.S. along with her Navy family. She’s been drawing since she could hold a pencil.

She’s produced cartoons, drawings and artwork for many organizations including Native Voices at the Autry, the Native Voice One Radio Service, rock group Queen, the Walt Disney Company (for their retail outlets), the National Park Service and other charitable groups around the U.S. “Super Indian” has been a long time coming.
