English: Ledger art is a Native American art form created by Plains, Plateau, and Great Basin tribes beginning in the mid-19th century. Comanche, Kiowa, Cheyenne prisoners of war at Fort Marion in Florida by the United States Government between 1875–1878 were prominent ledger artists. The art form marks a transition from Plains hide painting to easel arts. Due to tribes being forced onto reservations and the extermination of buffalo, paper from accountant's ledgers became a popular support for painting and drawing.
