The Tipi

A tipi (also tepee and teepee) is a Lakota name for a conical tent traditionally made of animal skins and wooden poles used by the nomadic tribes and sedentary tribal dwellers (when hunting) of the Great Plains.Wikipedia

It was indescribably beautiful at last weekend’s Mountain Man Rendezvous in Eureka, Montana. Tipis dotted the vast landscape and are the feature of today’s post along with inspirational Lakota sayings. More on the Black Powder Shoot in my next article.
