Goldie Tracy Richmond: Indian Trader, Trapper, and Quiltmaker

Goldie Tracy Richmond came to southwestern Arizona in 1927. She was 21, and her husband, Marion Tracy, was 63. The Tracys lived in a flimsy mining shack near San Simon on land that later became the Tohono O'odham Nation. To make a living, Goldie ran traplines, mined for gold, and opened Tracy's Trading Post in 1932 where she lived for four more decades.
This program is made possible by the Arizona Humanities Council.
