Cultural Sovereignty: Two Northern Cheyenne Ledger-Art Notebooks

This project will create an online resource of 1879 ledger notebooks with my researched commentary. Wild Hog and six other Cheyenne men, while in a Dodge City jail, recorded their experiences in unique narrative drawings. These indirectly refer to the tragic 1878 Ft. Robinson Breakout conflict. They also depicted other topics, including environmentally descriptive entries. This project annotates the Northern Cheyenne drawings for future scholars. The final product will be an online posting at the Plains Indian Ledger Art Project site (University of California-San Diego) and a manuscript addition to the Kansas State Historical Society Library and Archives. I have discussed this project with Norman Frank of UC-San Diego, director of the PILA project, and with Nancy Sherbert, Curator Special Collections of the Kansas State Historical Society. The Jan. 1, 2011 to July 31, 2001 project contributes primary historic/literary texts from the point-of-view of Cheyenne people.
