Native Americans lived in many different types of housing. Some tribes were nomadic (they moved around) while others settled down in one place. Also, housing for a warm climate would be very different than for cold temperatures.
Most of the Great Plains Indians were nomadic, so it was important that they could carry around their belongings with ease. This was why tipis (also spelled tepees or teepees) were so crucial to their lifestyle.
To build a tipi, first many wooden poles were criss-crossed in the air to create a cone-shaped structure. Once the poles were safely supported in the ground, a stretched canvas, usually made of buffalo hide, was draped and secured around the poles. A hole was left in the top so that a fire could be built within and smoke could billow out into the air. Mats on the floor inside were often made of buffalo hide, just like the tipi canvas itself.
Building a tipi was a complicated process, but in expert hands one could be set up or broken down in less than an hour. Usually women would do this, as they were largely in charge of domestic affairs. Tipis allowed ease of movement, since households could be rapidly taken down for transport and then set up again. A tipi could be small and hold just a few people, or could be vast enough for a dozen to sleep in!
Another type of dwelling was the wigwam, also known as a birchbark lodge or a wetu. Made in places with many trees, wigwams were built from branches and wooden lumber, with walls made of stretched tree bark or wood. Wigwams were one-room houses which, in contrast to portable tipis, provided more protection from the elements but couldn’t be easily moved. They were sturdy enough that they could last up to a year. Some wigwams were shaped like cones, while others had domed roofs. The Algonquian tribes built entire villages of wigwams, since they farmed and needed to stay in one place.
