Amos Bad Heart Bull (ca. 1868-1913) was a noted Oglala Lakota artist in a style which adapted traditional Native American pictography to a new European style medium known as Ledger Art for the accountants ledger books they were originally done in. He also fulfilled the role as tribal historian for the Oglala as his father Bad Heart Bull (Tȟatȟáŋka Čhaŋtéšiča) was before him.
Bad Heart Bull (Inspired by the wonderful Oglala Lakota artist) is also a band based in Columbus Ohio currently on tour and coming to Grand Rapids to do a show with the Wealthy Orphans Friday January 20th at the DAAC on S. Division Street in the Heartside Neighborhood. The evening begins with a puppet show and finishes with an original dance number by Marlee Grace to our new song Judgement Day. Below is a sample of her work.
