Trading Post Times

River Trading Post, Scottsdale was named as one of the five best

places in the Valley of the Sun for a true Native American experience

by

Travel + Leisure

magazine.

About River Trading Post, the magazine says, “

White oak floors, a

pressed-tin ceiling and lots of natural light help this modern shop selling Na-

tive American artwork and artifacts avoid the tourist-trap feel of similar stores

in Scottsdale. You’ll find pottery and baskets, Navajo textiles and Hopi Ka-

china, as well as an extensive jewelry collection with new and vintage pieces,

set with natural minerals like turquoise and coral.”

River Trading Post enjoys great company, and is pleased to be in-

cluded with other world-class venues for a true Native American ex-

perience. They include:

Heard Museum

, the premier center for learning about Native

American culture, and the site for one of the most prestigious

American Indian art fairs in the country.

Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park

, which

chronicles the ancient Hohokam people, and includes a Hohokam ruin.

Kai,

a five star, five diamond restaurant featuring Native American cuisine. “Kai” means

seed in the Pima language.

Deer Valley Rock Art Center

, a 47-acre park in Northwest Phoenix that preserves some

1,500 petroglyphs, ranging from abstract symbols and shapes to animal and human

figures.

Scottsdale is home to many fine Native American art galleries, and it is a special honor to be the

only art gallery to be included in this exclusive list of places as one of the Best Native American

experiences in town.

Today, River Trading Post includes the art and artifacts of over 70 different American Indian tribal

groups. And, if you visit River Trading Post in Scottsdale—especially during Thursday night Art-

Walk—it would not be unusual for you to meet one of the very finest American Indian artists

displaying his or her work...or just hanging out.
