LEDGER ART:Stories of the Plains Indians…Ledger Art, represents a transitional form of Plains Indian artistry corresponding to the forced reduction of Plains tribes to government reservations, roughly between 1860 and 1900.

slide2

The Plains Indians got their name because they lived among the Great Plains of the United States. This vast expansion of land extended all the way from Mississippi to the mountains of Canada.

slide3

In order to survive, the Plains Indians hunted buffalo as their main source of food. They would typically surround the buffalo on horse, until the group of Indians drove it to run off of a cliff.

slide5

Not only was hunting an integral part of Plains Indians’ life,RELIGIONwas as well.

      • Great Spirit
      • \'Medicine Bag or Bundle’
      • Smudging Rituals
      • Vision Quest. Tricksters
slide6

The Earth was considered the Plains Indians’ female God, and so all of her rich resources were utilized.

slide7

Due to the destruction of the buffalo herds and other game animals of the Great Plains by Anglo-Americans during and after the Civil War, painting on buffalo hide gave way to works on paper, muslin, canvas, and occasionally commercially prepared cow or buffalo hides.

slide8

LEDGER ART:When cloth wasn’t available, Natives used lined LEDGER papers and accountant LEDGER record books for the artists to finally tell their stories.

slide10

Plains artists adjusted well to the relatively small sized sheet of ledger paper. The wealth of detail possible with newly accessible coloring materials marks the Plains ledger drawings as one of the most popular forms of Native American Storytelling Art.

LEDGER ART emerged during the 1920s in Indian schools in Oklahoma and New Mexicoand is becoming more and more popular today. The older paintings done on Buffalo hide are some of the most expensive Native American art being sold today.

slide15

You are a Plains Indian who has had your land taken

from you and your family taken to a reservation.

Suddenly, you are taken from your family and placed

in a “White Man’s” school. You were told you can

take one treasure with you to the school. When you

arrive, you are asked to choose a new basic name,

your hair is cut, and your clothes are taken from

you in exchange for clothes that are the same as

all the other students.
