Rendezvous Trade Goods~Vermillion was a type of pigment & was widely prized by the Indians. Beads, brass rings & bracelets were imported EXCLUSEVELY for the Indian Trade. Knives, blankets, copper & tin kettles, lead, gunpowder & food were traded to both trappers & Indians. WHISKEY was a Very Popular Trade Item at Rendezvous, Traded by the FUR COMPANIES like Hudson Bay of course, the Trapper Lived for the Yearly Rendezvous, & would go out to do it again for next year!
