Description: [Trading circa 1910-1940 was] very different than it is now. If an Indian told you he would do something, you could pretty much tie to it that he was going to do it. They were very honest, they didn't try to take advantage of you--you had to be a little smarter than they were sometimes, but if you were on your toes, you were fine. Very few of them would take advantage of you. They ran the trading post on a business that they had their cattle and their sheep and their wool, and they would come in and get credit... and when they would sell their wool and their cattle and their sheep, then they'd clear up their accounts....
