Traders: Voices from the Trading Post

Supported by the United Indian Traders Association (UITA), a nonprofit organization founded in 1931 to ensure the authenticity of Native American arts and crafts, this Northern Arizona University site examines the trade history of the Native Americans of the southwest. The site offers slide shows taken from photographs in the special collections of the Northern Arizona Cline Library (see this report's New Data section) for the years from 1860 to the present. Users can also look at maps of the Indian territories and listen to over 40 oral histories from Native Americans and white traders and residents who interacted with the Navajo. In addition, Traders has a section dedicated to the products made and traded, including livestock, weaving, jewelry, pinon nuts, and more (this section also features a silent film of Navajo rug weaving).
