Under the brilliant blue desert sky the sun beats down upon the dry red earth of the canyon floor. The traditional American Indian home made from poles and a skin cover sits in its bright colours for us to admire. Designed for its ability to pack up and take with them in their migratory lifestyle the light weight yet cosy design suits there habitational needs perfectly.
Mimicking the land, sky, sun and precious water the painted design decorating the outer shell of the Tee Pee is easily discernible in meaning. A primitive yet very functional home, what a magnificent sight to see in the desert while we visit and learn such a rich history.
