Avatar -- the Prequel

Vin Sullivan's Magazine Enterprises published some of the best looking comics of the Golden Age from Ghost Rider to Thun'da. ME was where Frank Frazetta came into his own, particularly with the beautifully drawn White Indian.

As the title implies, the series was the story of a colonist who had been adopted by a native American tribe (already an old trope in 1949). The handling was respectful and the creators' sympathies were clearly with the hero's adopted people.
