Traditional tipi at FortWhyte Alive

Most are familiar with the conical tipis of the Native peoples of the Great Plains. The tipi captured the popular imagination as the picturesque and practical dwelling of nomadic buffalo-hunters. For the Plains Cree, the tipi was not only a highly functional home, it was also a social space and a ceremonial structure. Its construction and form - a powerful symbol of Native identity.
