    Plains Indian Ledger Art - CD-ROM project
       
    Plains Indian Ledger Art Digital Publishing Project
    Cheyenne  
    The Plains Indian Ledger Art Digital Publishing Project represents a cooperative effort to publish scholarly electronic editions of important examples of nineteenth century Plains Indian drawing done on paper. This genre, often called Ledger Art, formed a transitional genre of Plains Indian artistry corresponding to the forced reduction of Plains tribes to government reservations, roughly between 1860 and 1900. Due to the destruction of the buffalo herds and other game animals of the Great Plains by Anglo-Americans after the Civil War, painting on buffalo hide gave way to works on paper, muslin, canvas, and occasionally commercially prepared cow or buffalo hides. Currently, two ledger galleries are available, the Black Hawk "Dream Visions"Ledger, and the Cheyenne Ledger (Morning Star)
