In loving memory of Carmelita Jackson the owner of Sacred Grounds Trading Post who made her final journey to be with our anscestors on May 17th, 2019. She was 87 years old and lived a full and rich life. The end of her life was peaceful and joined by extended family and close friends. There was an immediate ceremony to send her traveling. Songs were sung with tobacco. Her vibrant character will be missed by many! Aho! Thank you for supporting Sacred Grounds Trading Post!  

 

Welcome to Sacred Grounds Trading Post. The trading post is located in Tucson, Arizona across from the University of Arizona campus. The store is just West of Campbell Ave. at 1814 East 6th Street in Tucson Arizona. The trading post is open 5 days a week, Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

 

The "Post" is Indian owned and operated. Carmelita Jackson, an enrolled member of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash, is the owner. Lee Jackson (Santa Ynez Band of Chumash) is the General Manager. Terry Jackson (Shawnee/Cherokee) is the Buyer, and Thomasa Rivas (Tohono O'odham) is the Assistant Manager. The store opened for business on October 12, 2005. It evolved from an idea to provide a needed resource of quality supplies to Natives and Native American goods and art to both native and non-native markets. The store offers a variety of Native American goods, such as beads and beading supplies, pow wow regalia supplies, leather goods, beaded items, pottery, baskets, jewelry, Pendleton products, and much, much more. The trading
post is small but it has “something for everyone”.  It is also a gathering place for social events and a hangout for local customers. The "Post" as it is affectionately called by locals has a rather nostalgic feel to it that customers immediately embrace. The "Post" was modeled from Lee's recollection of trading posts his family frequented when he was a small boy, many, many winters ago! Ayyy! You will see an old mechanical cash register on the counter beside a display of old fashioned stick candy, and yes, root beer is still the favorite! The walls are adorned with nostalgic junk that seems to put a smile on the face of every baby boomer that walks through the door. You will see every state commemorative plate that has an Indian on it, a Wah-Hoo game board, A Tecumseh engine nameplate, a 1952 Pontiac Chieftain hubcap, ads for Santa Fe Chief Line, Chickasaw hardwood floors, American Spirit and Black Hawk Tobacco and a Minnequa flax bag for carrying water across the desert. Other native memorabilia includes a Calument baking powder can, Iroquoise beer, and Princess popcorn. There is even an old fashioned pop corn wagon and an odd lot of tribal license plates. These are just a few of the highlights that grace the interior walls of the "Post". Stop by, you won't be sorry! We sell when we're open, we buy when we can, and trade when we can't buy! Better call first! Aho!
