Native Super Heroes Save The Day…at the Heard Museum

“What if…Superman had a relative who was Cherokee? In addition to Wonder woman there was Pueblo Girl? A high school student could transform into a powerful animal who fought an evil creature who had stalked his community since ancient times? A real Superhero from 1680 was needed again in 2180? And…What if you could help them as they battle villains and meet danger?” Heard Museum

Tales of super heroes inspire people to bravery and spark the imagination of both children and adults. Super heroes may be animals, humans or magical beings who speak, transform and use their special powers to fight evil and help others.

Many American Indian legends feature animal heroes of great power who teach life lessons. During the last few decades, some of these classic super heroes have inspired American Indian artists and graphic novelists to create new Native super heroes who confront evil and defend good in their communities.”
