With this edition of

Trading

Post Times,

we begin our 12th

year of publishing our quarterly

newsletter, especially for you.

Over the span of time our little

newsletter has, to our surprise,

become a collector’s item and is

found in such interesting places

as the Heard Museum Library

and Archives.

While the intent of the publica-

tion is to help stimulate busi-

ness around River Trading

Post, an even larger intent is to

provide readers with insights

into trends in the world of

American Indian art and into

ways to intelligently develop

and manage your own personal

collection.

Over the 11 year time span we

have published 176 pages of

information about the art and

the artists, and the enjoyment

of American Indian art.

You can review and search all

11 years of Trading Post Times

for your favorite subject on our

website.

There perhaps is nothing more

collectible than an historic

Navajo weaving from way

back.

Unless, that is, if the weaving is

created entirely of glass, as is

the “weaving” shown here.

Navajo artist, Carol Lujan

stretches the bounds of Ameri-

can Indian art though glass.

This is but one example of

Carol’s work, and it is one large

piece of glass art that measures

nearly three feet in length.

Carol Lujan, better known as

Carol Lujan, PhD and Profes-

sor emerita at Arizona State

University, is a master of creat-

ing glass art that is grounded in

the roots of her Navajo

heritage.

Through her work, Carol Lujan is a pioneer in expressing the

rich Diné culture beautifully in a totally new art form for

American Indian Artists.

Carol Lujan’s work, including this magnificent work is on dis-

play at River Trading Post, Scottsdale...and on our website.
