Overview Service & Activities
About Sho'o Daa' Chi (Hello in the Crow Indian Language) The Custer Battlefield Trading Post is located in the heart of Crow Country, directly across from the Little Bighorn Battlefield. We carry a full range of souvenirs and collectibles. From Custer key chains, to fully beaded Crow style cradles, we have it all. We also have a full service cafe, and plenty of things for the kids to look at. Tour buses welcome! Established in 1985 by James 'Putt' Thompson and his wife, Jill, this is not your average gift shop. The massive log and frame structure is the first thing to transport you to the past, as the building was designed after the 1877 Old Fort Custer Hospital. Once you're inside, the journey continues. Rustic walls display exquisite traditional Crow Indian creations, including a beaded elk hide wedding blanket, numerous paintings, hand crafted turquoise and silver jewelry, and a large collection of fabulously beaded Crow and Cheyenne cradles. Next, walk from the gift shop directly into the Thompson's cozy cafe and rub elbows with visitors from around the world. Yes, you may be surprised to find that the American West is as fascinating to many foreigners as it is to Americans. As you place your order, you'll quickly see why patrons come back every year to jaw with the Thompsons and their friendly staff while enjoying a meal of Buffalo Burgers or Indian Tacos. The cafe also holds a colorful mixture of beadwork and art, and the service is as cheerful as the food is tasty.
