Locke honors the memory of his ancestors by using ledger paper dated January 22, 1899 from a Black Hills grocery store as a reminder of that terrible time in Native American history. Native artists have continued to use 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 the spirit of a leader on a masterfully executed white and brown painted horse.
