Elisa Maza! The STRONG kick ass female lead in Disney’s Gargoyles, she was Native American and African (based of the ethnicity of her voice actor) and she certainly knew how to pull of a certain yellow dress too :P (submitting because she was and still is one of my fictional heroes, and quite nicely broke out of what was the norm in the 90s)
Whoa. DUDE. I had no idea this character or this show even existed! I need to go find it now! She’s apparently Nigerian and Hopi, although her last name is Lakota for some reason.
Interestingly, this isn’t the only Black Indian character in a disney movie! Dr. Joshua Strongbear Sweet in Atlantis: The Lost Empire had a Black father and an Arapaho mother.
My second favorite cartoon from when I was a kid. Elisa is a badass :D
WHAT?! I loved this show! How come nobody clued me in to this bit of infooooo!
Elisa was one of my favorite cartoon characters.
