"UGH!" 'PUSSYFOOT THE REDSKIN' (1922)
Above scans are from the central pages of the no. 1653 (dated Jan. 14th, 1922) and no. 1656 (dated Feb. 4th, 1922) of the British comics magazine Comic Cuts, featuring the strip 'Pussyfoot the Redskin' by an unknown artist. It is the earliest comic strip that I've come across which headlines an American native and while the character's name might not sound flattering, it is noteworthy that he outwits the whites with his intelligence in these two samples. I cannot find any info on this interesting strip, so if anyone knows anything about it, please let us know.
