Locke uses ledger paper dated March 23-24, 1899 from a Black Hills grocery store as a reminder of that terrible time in Native American history.

Since that time, Native artists have used ledger paper, making it part of the tradition.

In this example from his iconic Horse and Rider series, Locke depicts a beautifully dressed rider with lightening and hand symbol atop a masterfully executed horse.
