Captain Native America

Minnesotastan recently pointed out that Captain America in his classic suit looks more like Captain Puerto Rico with the single star. The superhero costume has changed, and I had to ask who he was when I saw Infinity War. So how should Captain America look?

A crafty cosplayer named Casey (redditor hotglueburns) made a splash at San Diego Comic Con when he arrived as Captain Native America. Casey is Osage and Oglala and knows about hot glue. He said,

I really appreciate all the comments! And I have to say, the overwhelming response I have received so far, is about the lack of representation in media. It was one of my main motivations in making the costume... I ended up having so many great conversations about this at the convention. And It meant a lot to have people coming and actually asking for hugs because they were genuinely so happy to see my costume. Really rewarding and inspiring experience for sure.
