On July 4,, 1962, the Indian Trading Post store opened in Disneyland’s Frontierland. It was originally part of the Indian Village attraction, with the store selling Native American arts and crafts. When the Indian Village was renamed Bear Country in 1972, the Indian Trading Post remained. In 1988, when the entire area was turned into Critter Country, the Indian Trading Post was renamed to the Briar Patch, to match the characters from Splash Mountain’s Song of the South theme and the characters from Winnie the Pooh. The Native American souvenirs were then replaced with souvenirs pertaining to those characters.
