Modern Ledger Art Painting

Corcoran, Dolores Purdy

A large, framed drawing entitled "Caddo Women taking repatriation of Ghost Dance Pole into their own hands" by Dolores Purdy Corcoran. According to Corcoran, this is a "contemporary work done in historical fashion dealing with a contemporary issue," that of fighting the illegal trafficking and looting of American Indian artifacts. Rendered in black ink and colored pencil on two pages of a ruled district court ledger, the piece shows five faceless women with black hair and colorful robes fleeing from three soldiers dressed in blue uniforms. All of the figures are on horseback. Two of the women hold the ends of a green and black pole. Dolores Purdy Corcoran is a member of the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma and is a resident of Topeka, Kansas. She purchased the antique ledger, dating from 1890, in an antique store in Scranton, Kansas. Corcoran's work is informed by the ledger art created by the warriors of native tribes while imprisoned in St. Augustine, Florida. She likes to work with ledger paper and colored pencils because they are the same tools used by her ancestors.
