Gone are the days of Cowboys and Indians where the cowboys are the heroes and indians are the bad guys. Thanks to historical research, we now know that the Indians, now referred to as Native Americans, are as much the good guys as anyone may be. While there is a growing number of Native American heroes, they still remain a relative minority among the white-dominated rosters of superheroes. Let's look at the most well-known examples of these.

James Proudstar is an Apache who was once with the Hellions. His older brother, John, code-named Thunderbird, died during one of the second X-Men team's missions (the second team was where Storm, Colossus and others first appeared). He was resentful against the X-Men over his older brother's death. However, he changes his views and later joins X-Force. His powers, like his older brother's, are enhanced physical capabilities and senses that enable him to fight with great skill. He can also fly.

More than a mutant version of Freddie Mercury, Forge has the power to invent things. He was an ally of the X-Men and X-Force, although he had also worked for the U.S. government creating certain inventions, such as anti-mutant weapons. One of these devices stripped the X-Man Storm of her abilities for a while. He is from the Cheyenne tribe.
