The early settlers couldn’t always travel the distance to the trading post for supplies so they would rendezvous at the site and wait for trading wagons to come to them. Because they lived such solitary lives, when they were together it was a time for sharing stories, food and having fun. There would be music and dancing.

The limited edition prints are numbered and signed. Some are black and white and some are hand-painted. Proceeds from the sale of prints help fund the two student days when thousands of area students come and learn about their heritage.
