Overview
More
To some, we are a Native American art gallery; to others, we are a trading post reminiscent of days gone by. On the corner of 6th Street and Main in downtown Rapid City, Prairie Edge stands two stories high and stretches out for half a block as a brick, wood, and glass storefront that has been restored to its original 19th century glory. Inside, the hardwood floors and polished cabinetry bring to mind the spirit of the Old West, while the distinct smell of sweetgrass and soft sound of a Lakota flute evoke the mystique of the Plains Indian culture.

Don't miss this amazing store/museum/art gallery and everything that would intrigue any age, ethnicity, and interest! If you miss this you have missed the culture of the Dakotas.

The Trading Company was larger than expected. We probably spent over an hour inside just lookng through the artistic creations from local artists, with items ranging in price from under $10 to $1000s.... something for everyone's pocket. The variety of items on sale was overwhelming,...More

Even if you're not in the market for souvenirs, it's worth a stop to browse the teepees, authentic costumes and crafts made by Native Americans in the area. There's also a gift shop area with kid friendly items like rubber band guns. You can find...More

What a store! We went to stroll through downtown Rapide City and never got out of Prairie Edge. The volume and beauty of the Native American art there was incredible.

The store is full of great shopping items but the gallery with the Native Indian art is wonderful. We stood in the downstairs doorway and marvelled at the cloaks, shirts, and the teepee. The silver jewellery took our fancy too and we couldn't help but...More
