- Not all Tribes live in tipis. Although tipis are automatically linked to Native America there aren’t any tribes in the southwest that live in tipis.
- Tipis are homes of the tribes of the Plains.
- Traditionally they were made from buffalo hides. The owner may paint various designs relative to their own story on the tipis.
- The Plains indians still use tipis. If you are fortunate to visit the Crow Fair in Crow Agency Montana you will see one of the largest tipi camps.
There is much care given to tipis and the way they are taken care of, erected and lodge poles seated will tell much about the people of that tipi.
