Throughout our Indian lands the trading posts serve also as pawn shops with the trader usually involved in an earthy form of banking business - part of the process known as pawning...... Most Hopi, Zuni and Navajo reservation Indians (The BIG Three) and many other Traders converted their turquoise and silver jewelry into cash....... At times the trading post vault is the safest place in which to keep valuables........ In this case the Native American pawns their items for a minimum loan of cash and is happy to pay the interest rate in return for the security of his goods......
