Tipi and Earth Lodges of the Plains Tribes

Discover your family's story. Enter a grandparent's name to get started. Start Now One of the most characteristic features of Plains Indian culture was the tipi.

First, a conical framework of long slender poles was erected and...

It is customary to treat of all habits or customs having to do with the family organization, the community, and what we call the state, under the head of social organization. So, in order that the reader may form some general idea of social conditions in this area, we shall review some of the discussed points. Unfortunately,...

Industrial Arts of the Plains Tribes

This fact greatly increases the importance of such arts when considered as cultural traits. Fire making The methods of making fire are...
