Native American trade silver refers to metal items that European traders and Native Americans used as a form of currency during the colonial period in North America. Indigenous people highly valued trade silver for its aesthetic appeal and symbolic significance. Native American artisans also adapted the silver into their own unique styles, incorporating traditional motifs and designs into the silverwork. Today, Native American trade silver continues to be highly sought after by collectors, historians, and enthusiasts. It represents a significant historical artifact that reflects the interactions and cultural exchange between Native American tribes and European traders during the colonial era.
