Nations at War! Field Sketches of a Pawnee Warrior

September 1, 2023 – December 31, 2023

Most people assume Native American ledger art stopped in the 1800s. These artistic drawings served as pictographic narratives recording a person’s life and experiences in combat. However, this tradition continued into the 20th century and into World War 2. Drawn by Pawnee artist Brummett Echohawk, these sketches are one of a kind. No other museum in the country has anything like them.
