Although an unlikely place for

a first rate Native American

artifact and antique show, Bara-

boo hosts the 21st such annual

event on June 25 and 26, and

RTP will be there.

The show features top dealers

from around the country, and

it’s the only show like this that

we’ve ever seen that doesn’t

charge admission.

Baraboo is just a short hop from

Chicago or Milwaukee in the

beautiful rolling hills of

Wisconsin.

For serious collectors and

novices alike, this show has

something for everyone.

This show continues to be our

very favorite. C ome see us in

Baraboo.

Ramson Lomatewama is a

multi-talented artist from Hote-

villa, Arizona. He is a member

of the Hopi tribe who speaks

his native language and is an

active participant in his relig-

ion.

Ramson is a successful jeweler,

glass blower, stained glass art-

ist, poet and traditional style

Katsina doll carver.

He began carving when he was

twelve, and has emerged as one

of the finest traditional style

carvers.

Ramson says, “I’m trying to

express what people were trying

to express a long time ago, be-

fore the commercial stuff

started to influence doll carv-

ing. I’m making a living. I’m

not anti-commercial; I’m just

pro back-to-basics.”

Ramson also has published a

number of poetry books includ-

ing

Silent Winds, Poetry of One

Hopi

,

Ascending the Reed,

and

Drifting Through Ancestor

Dreams.

A book of his selected

poems was published in France

in early 2001.

Visitors to River Trading Post

galleries and the River Trading

Post website can enjoy an ex-

tensive collection of Ramson’s

carvings.
