Children of all ages are invited to use their imaginations and explore the Plains Indian’s ledgers and create their own modern day version of an NYC ledger. The exhibit provides an overview of the Plains Indian ledger art. Children can create their own drawing on ledger paper using crayons, colored pencils, and stencils.
