              For me? because I am getting tired of living in a concrete jungle. Plus, it may help me learn more about my heritage. That and I actually enjoy being outside working with my hands. (this also includes mowin the grass ;) )

                    Ummm not all tribes lived in tipis back then. We still use our traditional hogan as our home to this day, its common these days out here to see a family or whomever live in a hogan and still growing crops and using their cow/sheep as food. but as for transportation, lol.. they all got cars LOL :Chatters but I remember that at my nali's house they had a wagon there :D I can be living in the city one day here and go back to my grammas and live that "back in the day" way. lol and my gramma dont have running water either she was lucky to get electricity, barely tho.. sooo for me i dont think i'd have to really give up much, because that life is already there back at home and believe me its not going anywhere!!! :D

                            yeah i would....but my people didn't live in tipi's exclusively....mostly just in the spring and summer.....we lived in Longhouses during the fall and winter.....but yeah, i would ......the only downfall would be that i probably wouldn' t have the oppurtunity to meet all you wonderful people .....especially all muh homiez......on this website.....but yeah.....i could do that, live the true way....that would be just great!!!!

                              Cherokee never used Tipis. Their houses back then were very simular to the Navajo Hogans.

                              I've lived without running water, having to go outside to do my business, and no electricity. I've lived where we had to catch or hunt our own food, and nothing went to waste.

                              I'm NOT giving up my bathroom!!! I LIKE my running water toilet, and not having to go out and dig a hole just to poop, and then bury it!!!! Camping is one thing! I ain't living that way again, unless I have no other choice!! My bathroom even has a heater in it! Comfy warm before steping into nice warm water ..... of course we only have cistern water, so gotta be careful and can't just stand there and enjoy, but it's still nice and comfy warm in the winter time!

                                The design for the singer shirt is almost ready. It will feature several singers at a drum and a computer in the background. The question now is what should the line above the picture say?

                                I just have a quick question about zip up leggings. Should they be as tight fitting as you get them, or would it be better to leave a little extra room. This is my first pair.
