Short biography
Ernie Bulow is a sometime bookman whose interests and experience extend to journalism, photography, Indian trading, writing, silversmithing, and teaching. He claims he could probably make a decent living as a trader if he didn't have so much fun at it. As it is, he continues to include a few traders among his friends, despite his better judgement.

Born in San Francisco in 1943, Bulow first encountered some of the Navajo people while working alongside the migrant laborers on his grandfather's farm in southern Idaho. After taking a degree in English in the early sixties, he worked for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, living in Gallup and teaching English at Fort Wingate on the Navajo Reservation. During this time he saw or took part in all the major Navajo healing rites.

Following receipt of a doctorate from the University of Utah, he returned to New Mexico, where he traded in Indian jewelry and kachinas and opened a bookstore, among other activities. Currently he writes reviews for the Gallup Independent teaches an occasional class at the Gallup branch of the University of New Mexico, and deals in rare books. [from Talking Mysteries (1991 printing)]
