More Than Just a Tipi Raising

SEPTEMBER 27, 2021 -- A tipi is a portable conical structure made of skins, cloth or canvas on a frame of poles used by Indigenous Peoples of North America. The purpose of the tipi is to provide shelter, warmth and connectedness between family and community. It not only provided physical support for Indigenous Peoples, it also has many teachings about humanity’s relationship with the natural and spiritual worlds. The tipi today is still used for modern-day ceremonial gatherings and teachings. It is an iconic symbol for representing Indigenous Peoples’ identity.
