Scope note(s)

  • January 31 - March 31, 1996. An exhibit of drawings in graphite, pencil crayon, crayon, and ink by Hongeeyesa, an Assiniboine artist who lived in what is now southern Saskatchewan between 1860 and 1927. Called “ledger drawings” because they were sometimes done on lined accountant’s paper provided by government Indian agents, these drawings provide invaluable information about Native life in the mid to late 1800s. This national touring exhibition was organized by Glenbow and is the result of a special collaboration between Glenbow’s guest curator Valerie Robertson, co-writer Charlotte Nahbixie, John Haywahe (grandson of the artist), and the people of Carry The Kettle First Nations.
