American Indian artist George Flett, of the Spokane Tribe, traces the outline of a Prairie Chicken Dancer on a strip of ledger paper fixed on canvas at his studio in Wellpinit, Wash., in June 2007. Flett, who died Wednesday, was one of a growing number of artists who are continuing the tradition of ledger art as a historical record of the Native American people.
