Conservation of Native American Ledger Art

The Oklahoma Museum of Natural History holds three ledger art books related to the Kiowa tribe. Ledger art provides rich detail on the cultural practices of the Native American tribes found on the Southern Plains and captures detailed images of wars, battles, hunts, ceremonies, rituals, and other aspects of tribal life. This art can be a complex form of storytelling. A professional paper conservator will undertake preservation efforts to conserve these ledger books and to allow safe handling of the objects.
