Women and Ledger Art

Four Contemporary Native American Artists

The University of Arizona Press
Although ledger art has long been considered a male art form, Women
and Ledger Art
calls attention to the extraordinary achievements
of four contemporary female Native artists – Sharron Ahtone Harjo
(Kiowa), Colleen Cutschall (Oglala Lakota), Linda Haukaas (Sicangu
Lakota), and Dolores Purdy Corcoran (Caddo). The book examines these
women’s interpretations of their artwork and their thoughts on
tribal history and contemporary life. 
Richard Pearce is professor emeritus of English atWheaton College in Massachusetts. He has published six books onmodernist narrative. Now in retirement, he has applied hisexperience to the narratives of Plains Indian ledger art, extending hiscommitment to cross-cultural feminism.
