Original Ledger Art Pieces by Robert "Running Fisher" Upham.  

 

Robert "Running Fisher" Upham

is a mixed blood Indian from the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation, where he attended schools in Harlem, MT. He is Dakota, enrolled in the Lake Traverse Sioux Reservation (Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate). Many of his topics deal with Social Justice and Indian History. The Plains Ledger style of his artwork is originated from the captive American Indians who were imprisoned and considered hostile. While in prison in places like Fort Marion, Florida and Fort Robinson, Nebraska they were given color pencils and used accounting ledger books to doodle in. But, they had more to show then doodles. Their drawings were accounts of their hunts, marriages, deaths, and war parties.
