June is our month to pack the

trading trailer and hit the road.

First stop is Villa Park, Illinois

for the first ever Historic Indian

and Tribal Arts Show. The

show will feature over 100 of

the top dealers in the country,

all with exceptional Native

American antiques. We will be

at the Odeum from Friday,

June 11 through Sunday, June

13.

Then we head north to Bara-

boo, Wisconsin for our very

favorite show. The Native

American Artifact & Antique

Show is celebrating its 20th

year, and River Trading Post

will be there with dealers from

around the country on Satur-

day, June 26 and Sunday, June

27. Come see us!

Mohawk carver Stan Hill once

said “My work makes me fully

realize that life is a circle. Even

though we cannot see life, (it)

does not mean it isn’t there.”

Stanley Hill was a quiet man

who told his stories by carving

moose antler that he would

bring into the reservation from

Newfoundland. His work has

been featured in

National Geo-

graphic Magazine

and has been

included in many impressive

collections, including that of

the late president, John F. Ken-

nedy.

Back in 1978 he was featured in

a demonstration of bone carv-

ing at the Field Museum of

Natural History in Chicago.

Hill credits his Creator with

inspiring him to carve wildlife

and human figures from pieces

of antler and bone.

Hill’s magnificent work

Corn

Spirit

was created of moose

antler in 1999. Today this

prized carving is offered by

River Trading Post.

In his last interview he won-

dered if he would live until

spring. Although Hill passed

into the Creator’s world on

December 14, 2003, his art will

live forever.
