The Dakota tipi has been used for centuries as a portable home, and for ceremonies and gatherings. A traditional tipi was a practical, movable dwelling used by Plains Indians as they followed the buffalo to hunt. The tipi was made of tanned animal hides, usually buffalo, sewn together and supported by wooden poles. An inside central fire was used for warmth and cooking, and a flap allowed the smoke to escape. Since the tipi was waterproof, it remained comfortable all year round. Tipis were decorated with symbolic designs of meaning to the owner. Most tipis today are made of canvas.
