  • A single tipi stands in a clearing with several deciduous trees without leaves, behind which are more trees, bushes, and part of a creek. The tipi is made of canvas and grass mats, and there is a small broom and pile of material next to it. To the right of the tipi, on the ground, is a stack of wooden tipi poles and a pile of folded mats. To the far right of the photo are the indications of where a second tipi used to be. The sky is full of clouds and the photo appears to have been taken at dusk.
Tribal Notes
