Wakeah Jhane Ledger Drawing

Wakeah Jhane is a self taught ledger artist from the Penatuka (honey eater) and Yaparucah (root eater) bands of Comanche and is also Blackfeet and Kiowa. The late Wakeah Hoaway (1914-2010) of her maternal family gifted her name to her prior to birth in their traditional Comanche way, meaning "woman who finds lost things". Being brought up in the Native art world by mother, Jhane Myers, Wakeah Jhane was always fascinated with many art forms, one of them being ledger art. In 2016 Wakeah Jhane was invited as a demonstrating artist during the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in New York City for their new exhibit, Unbound: Narrative Art of The Plains. She has won first place in the 2012 SWAIA Indian Market Youth division and also showed successfully at the Autry Museum’s Indian Marketplace, Heard Museum Guild Indian Market, Native Treasures, Santa Fe Indian Market, Indian Market Winter Show and the NMAI Winter Art Market.

Artwork sits in a 9 1/2" x 7 1/2" frame that can be hung or placed atop a surface.
