I pass this awesome store on the way to work everyday.
Whether you're looking to buy a Pendleton blanket, an authentic pair of beaded moccasins, baskets or supplies such as beads and hides, you're sure to find them at the Mohawk Lodge. This unique store was the first trading post in Indian Territory, opened in 1892 in nearby Colony as an outlet and beading house for the Cheyenne women to make and sell their handmade creations. The store was moved to its present location on Route 66 in 1940, and still buys, sells and trades authentic Indian crafts and artifacts across the same counter used in 1892. While visiting, be sure to view the original antique photos of Cheyennes and other museum-worthy treasures that have traded at the historic site over the past century.
