Description Tepees (also spelled Teepees or Tipis) are tent-like American Indian houses used by Plains tribes. A tepee is made of a cone-shaped wooden frame with a covering of buffalo hide. Like modern tents, tepees are carefully designed to set up and break down quickly. As a tribe moved from place to place, each family would bring their tipi poles and hide tent along with them. Originally, tepees were about 12 feet high, but once the Plains Indian tribes acquired horses, they began building them twice as high.
Jed Packer Member Since September 2016 Artist Statement My first trip to Yellowstone happened in 1990. I'd just written an English paper on the Yellowstone fires. I wanted to see it first hand. It was amazing. I've been shooting and visiting places throughout the western USA, Europe, South America and the Middle East. Seen some amazing places and eaten some fantastic food.
