Tipis for the Modern Day Stay

Written By: Alexandria Autrey

Tepee, also spelled tipi, is a conical tent that was most common to the North American Plains Indians. Although a number of Native American groups used similar structures during the hunting season, only the Plains Indians adopted tepees as year-round dwellings. The tepee was generally made by stretching a cover sewn of dressed buffalo skins over a framework of wooden poles and in some cases reed mats, canvas, sheets of bark, or other materials were used for the covering. In addition, it was also common for Native Americans to devote much of the winter season to decorating their tepees with colorful paintings of animals and the hunt. The beauty and gracefulness of the tepee made it the popular image of the home of all indigenous Americans. Nowadays, most tipis have been made into popular glamping suites. They are now equipped to help ensure each glamper the ultimate comfort, most offering beds and unique decorations as well as certain amenities to make sure you get an unforgettable experience in nature. The shape and design of tipi's are made to stay warm during winter and cool during summer. The modern tipis follow the same shape and general design as historical tipis but, they use different materials. Each tipi on Glamping.com is different however, one thing stays the same, you will get a unique experience at all these destinations.
