Depictions of hunting scenes are important in Native American art. Traditionally, deeds were commemorated in rock art and were painted on objects such as buffalo robes. In the nineteenth century this pictorial tradition was transferred to paper. Four Southern Cheyenne (Tsistsistas) Indians, named Galloping, Littleman, Kiowa and Sweetwater, drew scenes of cultural life in a ledger book collected at Fort Supply, Oklahoma.
