Share Article

Black Otter Trading Post has reclaimed it's web space after years of absence. Photos archived of Native American beadwork, African trade beads and more have returned.

After many years of absence Black Otter Trading Post has returned. The domain began in 1999 and ended in early 2002 after unfortunate circumstances. Featured in the photo gallery will be archived photos of reproduction beadwork, African trade beads and more. Photos of original pieces from museum collections will begin inclusion in the near future. Much of the photo collection goes back to the 1970's and will be an interesting addition to the archive.

Black Otter Trading Post is named after the Black Otter trail in Billings Montana. The original business was formed in 1983 and business conducted at mountain man rendezvous around the region. The product line at the time included brain tanned buckskin, reproduction beadwork, muzzle loading rifles, and fur trade era supplies. Black Otter Trading Post no longer sells any of these products at this time.

The original storefront began in Heron Montana in the mid 1990's. When the internet came to rural Montana, Black Otter jumped aboard the information highway and climbed to the top of the search engines. The finished beadwork has been sold throughout the world and much of it ordered from the website. Black Otter Trading Post wishes to thank all of the old customers and welcome them back to the original domain.
