Welcome to "Word Carrier Trading Post" your online source for books on Native American people, current and historic. Native American Indian Owned & Operated Specializing in Native American, Multi-cultural, Indigenous Literature & Good Trade Products Word Carrier is about bringing the written word to your schools, communities and homes. In the late 19th century a newspaper called ”Iapi Oaye” was used to communicate from tiospaye to tiospaye. We now bring that same concept to your community by traveling to schools and communities across the nation bringing the written word in the form of books. We carry over a thousand titles written by native and non-native authors, about natives peoples in history and in the world today. We focus on literature that is reflective of the Northern Plains Tribes. But also work hard at meeting the literary needs of native tribes across the United States. We  now have a stand alone sister store called Bird Cage Bookstore and Mercantile.  We are located in the heart of the Black Hills of South Dakota  at 524 7th Street, Rapid City, South Dakota 57701 can find us on Facebook
