Page Background

The Bandolier bag was fash-

ioned after the type of pouch

carried by British soldiers. To-

day it is a prized possession of

Native American art collectors.

Woodland Indian men wore

bandolier bags as objects of

prestige. The precious beads

that grace the bags were called

“berries of the Creator.”

The Bandolier Bag shown here

was created in the late 19th

century, and is on display at

River Trading Post, Santa Fe.

This piece is one of many that

are included in the River Trad-

ing Post Select collection. Read

ARKET

During 2009, River Trading

Post has instituted a program

that is totally unique among

Native American art galleries.

We call it the

River Trading Post

Artist Showcase.

The purpose of

the initiative is really twofold.

One is to provide artists with an

environment in which to create

their work. The other is to pro-

vide visitors and artists the op-

portunity to interact with each

other.

Artists are selected for the pro-

gram based on their application

to participate, and submission

of their work for review and

acceptance.

River Trading Post provides

each artist with working space

and the opportunity to sell their

work directly to our many visi-

tors.

All of the proceeds from the

sales of his or her work goes directly

to the artist.

Our artist lineup includes many

well established Native Ameri-

can Artists, as well as emerging

artists that we believe have

exceptional talent.

River Trading Post guests love

the opportunity to meet with

the artists and to learn more

about their art and culture.

And the artists enjoy meeting

with visitors, and sometimes

can’t help but chuckle about

some common misconceptions

that people have.
