Overview

An artistic community unique in American history flourished in St. Augustine, Florida, between 1875 and 1878. Some 70 Plains Indians, imprisoned for their refusal to accept life on the reservations, produced an extraordinary body of work that chronicled their history, their lives, and their experience of exile from the freedom so central to their heritage. Called "ledger art" after the large lined books that in most cases were the first form of paper they used, these remarkable pencil and ink depictions are vivid evocations of a poignant chapter in American history. A superbly annotated reproduction of one such ledger, originally presented to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs in the late 19th century, Warrior Artists presents more than 50 eloquent drawings by two of the finest practitioners of this traditional narrative art.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At the tail end of Indian fighting in the West, the U.S. government sent 72 Plains Indians to be interned at Fort Marion, in St. Augustine, FL. During the three years that these prisoners were held as hostages for their tribes, their officer, Capt. Richard Pratt, thought of imaginative crafts they could sell to improve their lot. Over 20 artists created ledger books filled with drawings, one of which is reproduced here. The book is the work of two artists: Making Medicine, a Cheyenne who drew lively and expressive scenes of Plains life, and Zotom, a Kiowa, who offered detailed, three-dimensional scenes that are almost a diary of his travels. Not a facsimile reproduction, this book includes explanatory (and sometimes obvious) comment on each scene and an interesting historical preface. A frequent writer on Native American issues, Viola is curator emeritus for the Smithsonian. Fine but somewhat specialized; recommended for extensive Native American or arts and crafts collections.--Gay Neale, Southside Virginia Community Coll. Lib., Alberta
