A Wigwam


On our field trip last week, the actors camped out as people would in the late 1800's. The Native Americans had a Wigwam and a Tipi. It was very interesting!

  2. I am guessing that the originals would have been skins, but I think this was more of a canvas type material.

  7. It's so amazing and humbling seeing how people lived. Before your know modern luxury items like toilets and say central heating!!

  9. That's pretty neat! Didn't they use bark sheets for the roof? Maybe I'm thinking of something else...

    God Bless!

    We've been talking about building a play house or tree house, now I am thinking a wigwam would be the best thing!

    that may well be. This was the last stop of our field trip and I wasn't able to ask about the building or hear much of what was being discussed. By then I was chasing (literally) the three little ones who were getting restless.

  12. That's really a fun hut--sure makes you appreciate a home with indoor plumbing though!
