The Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Character
of Alpha Flight
Yukotujakzurjimozoata is better known as "Yukon Jack," a member of Canadian super-hero team Alpha Flight. Yukon Jack is a member of a mysterious lost tribe of people. He is an adherent of the primal-indigenous religion of his tribe, which is probably related in some ways to other previously known native American religions and cultures that are indigenous to Canada.

I'm doing a project for Ohio State University about subordinate group representation in Marvel Comic's superhero population (pretty awesome, huh?)
A subordinate group basically means a population that's not a dominant group. And I've got 7 categories to fill; ethnic, gender, religious, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, and physical or mental ability. ..though I think I'll cut socioeconomic status do to it's fine line-ish qualities in comics.
So, how about I'll give what I've got so far, and then feel free to add to my lists. I think I have a pretty good handle on the MU, but it's still huge and I don't want to forget anybody. Should be fun anyway.
Race or Ethnicity: (this is the big one.)

Yukon Jack isn't Native American.

Thanks guys. You're a lot of help in this.
I guess, in my haste, I was going with the American titles of things. So sorry about calling Black Panther "African American" instead of black.
Just curious (and sorry for my ignorance) but what would you call someone like Yukon Jack. All I know of is the 'proper american term.'

Unknown, as stated he isn't human he considered himself a demi-god. His people from the village of Kemteron are vastly different from typical Native Americans.
