After the famed Little Big Horn fight, in which George Armstrong Custer was defeated by the Sioux and Cheyenne in 1876, the U.S. Army recovered a Lakota Sioux ledger book from the battlefield. It was filled with drawings by Plains Indian warriors.

The exhibit presents colored drawings from the ledger with historic Lakota objects from the Peabody’s collections, and work by contemporary Lakota artist and co-curator Butch Thunder Hawk.
