Remembering Brant

He was a teacher, a former

Navy Seal, an airplane pilot an

Ojibwe pipe keeper, a storyteller

and a valued member of the

River Trading Post family.

Brant Snyder was a big man,

and a gentle soul who never lost

his passion for teaching, wheth-

er the subject was science or

engineering or American Indian

art.

Friends visiting River Trading

Post and having the pleasure to

meet Brant never left the gallery

without taking away a bit more

understanding of American

Indian art.

Frequently Brant would bring

groups of bright-eyed students

to River Trading Post where he

would enthrall them with stories

of ancient American Indian

tradition as it is expressed

through various art forms.

We lost our friend Brant in May

following his determined battle

with a long illness that ultimate-

ly took him away from us. But

never away from being a part of

the River Trading Post family.

The consummate teacher

One of our very favorite places is the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in

Albuquerque. The center is owned by the 19 northern Pueblo tribes of

New Mexico, and is worth each minute of your visit. On weekends, you can see

beautiful traditional dances from the various pueblos, and feel the heart beat of the

pueblo drums. You also will enjoy the marketplace where pueblo artisans offer

their work.

The center features a wonderful museum where you can see art and artifacts, in

addition to a resource library with over 5,000 titles.

The

Pueblo Harvest Café

has to be the best “brunch” spot in Albuquerque. Their

blue corn pancakes are just yummy, and their Bloody Mary is the best!

And, cameras are permitted. Enjoy the visit.
