wyo,

This is true. I have helped set up several tripod tipis by laying the pole behind each tripod, in order, one at at time, to get that spiral look.

In addition to the Omaha, I wonder about other tribe's tipis:

Lakota,
Nakoda,
Nez Perce,
Assiniboine,
Hidatsa,
Cree,
Ponca,
Otoe,
Quapaw?


Anybody?


Incidently, The two biggest tipis I ever saw were in Hobbema, Alberta and Schemitzun. Does anybody have any information about these tipis?
