According to Quantcast, an

audience measurement service,

the River Trading Post website

is the number one place for

people looking at American

Indian Art and information

about American Indian Art.

If you haven’t yet, we invite

you to explore the library on

our website.

You will find information about

questions we most frequently

receive, from how to sell your

collection to a searchable col-

lection of over 9 years of our

Trading Post Times newsletter.

We feel that our website should

be an information resource for

you, as well as a selling place.

And, we always welcome sug-

gestions on ways from our

RTP friends on how to make it

even better.

ESOURCE

The River Trading Post artist

family has a consistent record

of taking top honors in world-

class competitions.

2012 is off to a great start with

Kikapoo/Potawatami artist

Pahponee

taking first place

honors in the non-traditional

pottery design category.

Pahponee is a self-taught clay

artist who has learned the tradi-

tional pottery methods of her

Woodlands culture. She is

known for her technical excel-

lence in working with clay.

Pahponee will tell you that

working with clay is a sacred

activity for her. This involves

personal interaction between

the clay, herself, and as Native

people say, “All My Relations.”

Oneida artist

Mark Fischer

garnered a second place win in

the bronze sculpture division of

the market with his

Porcupine

copper sculpture, shown below

right.

Mark’s designs celebrate na-

ture, gender, clan design, Na-

tive art and culture that draws

inspiration from ancient Wood-

land petroglyphs and picto-

graphs. Each of his copper

sculptures is hand cut, welded

with sterling silver, and given a

patina finish to enhance the

aging process.

Visit River Trading Post, and

our website to see the work of

Pahponee and Mark Fischer.
