Ledger Art
Also called "Warrior Art", this was the practice of drawing pictographs utilizing traditional materials within the era, such as ledger paper, colored pencil and pencil, by warriors of the Plains nations; a visual expression of their great feats and lifestyle during the 1800's.

At this time Indigenous peoples were being forced onto reservations by the federal government and no longer has the availability of the buffalo hides to use as their canvas.  It was a time of change and what some would refer to as "The Dark Ages" for the First Nation people.
