Chris Claremont's Indians

A new reader asked what I thought of Chris Claremont's "appropriation" of Natives in the comic books he's written. My response:

I've written about Claremont's Indians before. The short answer is: He did better than many of his peers, but not as good as the best writers of Native characters.

For discussions of individual Indians, see Thunderbird in the Comics, Some Talk About Moonstar, and Wingfooting It with Wyatt for discussions of individual Indians. For discussions of the team's diversity, see X-MEN Marks the Spot, X-Men:  All-New or Same-Old?, and Multiculturalism in the X-Men.
