Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site

At this post, the Assiniboine, Crow, Cree, Ojibway, Blackfeet, Hidatsa, and other tribes traded buffalo robes and other furs for trade goods such as beads, guns, blankets, knives, cookware, and cloth. It represents a short period in American history when two cultures found mutual benefit and common ground through trade and understanding.
