Last of the Pemmican Art Prints by Martin Grelle Artist
Native Americans would go southwest onto the prairie in Red River carts, slaughter buffalo, (like jerky) convert it into pemmican, and carry it north to trade at the North West Company posts. For these people on the edge of the prairie, the pemmican trade was as important a source of trade goods as was the beaver trade for the Indians farther north.
