Arthur's deep appreciation for the American Indian, the culture, tradition and history began as a boy growing up in Eastern Oregon. When he was a graduate student, studying law, he walked into an antique shop and purchased his first Navajo rug. This led to a lifelong passion to own a piece of history in the form of art and material culture items. Before long, he was buying, selling and trading American Indian arts and opened his store in 1974.

The Columbia River runs south through Washington State before continuing west along the border between Washington and Oregon, passing from high desert to temperate rain forest as it drains a vast intermontane plateau between the Rocky Mountains and Cascade Range. A number of Chinook and Sahaptin-speaking Native American tribes along the Columbia share elements of a common culture, reflected in the unique design elements of their carvings, baskets, and other items of daily life.
