Traders Among the Crow by Howard Terpning
The small businessman comes in every shape and form, as well as every era, and during the mid-1800s, individual trappers left the big fur companies to strike out on their own, bringing their trade wares directly to Indian tribes.
In Traders among the Crow men and women listen to a spiel and are encouraged to exchange their buffalo robes for gun powder, axes, knives, tobacco and blankets.
Howard Terpning is one of the most sought after artists for native american artwork.
