Bear Creek Trading Co: Real Native American Goods
This is the genuine article. Everything in the store is made by Native peoples from around the USA, many items made by the owners themselves. Spend some time browsing and talking to Harper and Sandra.
What to buy: Many of the Dreamcatchers and pipes are made right there in the shop, as well as hand carved walking sticks. Excellent values!

A good place to visit would be...
A good place to visit would be the Roosevelt Foundation. It is where Franklin Delano Roosevelt visited often. During the polio outbreak of the 1930s that was where people flocked to get rehab for their polio. The Roosevelt Institute for Rehabilitation is a nice place to get a tour of. If you got to the brace shop you can get a great tour guide, my dad, Melvin! He is the head of the brace shop where they manufacture braces and artifical limbs. He shows people how they make the products and gives tours of the Institute. Also don't forget to check out the actual warm springs, they are right outside the Institute.

A 'Distinguished Visitor'
The entire town seems to be devoted to arts and crafts and eating - not a bad thing. After a long day of driving and touring the Little White House, I only have one thing left to say, "Ya'll come back now, you heah?"
Downtown Warm Springs
This is one side of the short street in downtown Warm Springs. This is a historic hotel that has been converted to a bed and breakfast. We looked at the rooms. Very neat indeed. Well worth staying there.
