The John Wesley Powell Museum is excited and proud to announce the opening of our newest exhibit, The Trading Post at Powell Museum.
Trading posts were an integral part of early life in the southwest. Local Native Americans traded jewelry, weavings, and livestock for staples. The trading post was also a gathering spot where locals could meet friends and catch up on the latest news and events.
The Blair family, led by Elijah (known as Jai Yaz hi to the Navajo) and Claudia Blair, ran Blair’s Dinnebito Trading Post on and near the Navajo Reservation. Pieces from their family collection have been incorporated into this new exhibit.
View one-of-a-kind items, like a cradle board and authentic rug-weaving loom – some for sale, some not – but all imparting a glimpse into the past…of life in and around The Trading Post.
