Indian traders, past and present

Several people who trade with the Navajo and other Indians of the Southwest were in Grand Junction recently for an exhibit and auction at the Musuem of Western Colorado.

I got the chance to talk at length with two of them, Sheri Burham and Emerald Tanner, both fifth-generation Indian traders in the southwest, and I wrote the column linked to below.
