Ledger Art is a term for Plains Indian narrative drawing or painting on paper or cloth. Ledger art flourished primarily from the 1860s to the 1920s. A contemporary revival of ledger art began in the 1960s and 1970s. The term comes from the accounting ledger books that were a common source for paper for Plains Indians during the late 19th century.
