The New Adventures of Super Indian is an exciting, thrilling, and brand new three-episode, approximately one-hour each, audio play premiering on April 14th, 21st, and 28th, 2021 as part of the Native Voices at the Autry program at Autry Museum of the American West. Based on Starr’s popular graphic novels, Super Indian, The New Adventures of Super Indian tells the comedic exploits of Super Indian and the residents of the fictional Leaning Oak Tribe Reservation. Hubert Logan, an ordinary reservation boy turned superhero faces off against three of his biggest foes—Wampum Baggs, the ringleader of the Circle of Evil; Blud Kwan’Tum, a cursed vampire determined to become a full-blooded Indian by any means necessary; and Karlie Keane, a scheming social media diva. With over 95 characters performed by a handful of Indigenous actors and actress in this three episodic audio play, The New Adventures of Super Indian is the newest artistic creation by Indigenous artist, musician, actor, and playwright, and a renowned comic book writer and artist: Arigon Starr. Also, the production marks the first time ever that Native Voices has premiered a play via audio episodes.
