  • model tipis

    Hi everyone! I would like to make a model tipi to use in an educational setting. If I wanted a table top model, what would be the measurements(including the length of the poles? I would also like to make a base.....like a piece of wood with holes drilled in it to support the poles. What do you think?

          Thanks, yaahl! Those are some great links. But, I wonder if anyone has info about how to figure the size of the poles in proportion to the size of the tipi.....like a table top model?

            Do it to scale on graph paper. Trace the pattern onto graph paper to the size you'd like and then the poles will be to scale as well.

              harness, vest???
              by hoopster girl
              I've seen so many yokes made now a days and now its time to redo one of mine (too much frybread) anyway, it was attached to a vest but I don't know if I want to make it attach to a harness or just another vest. So I figured I'd ask around. What do you like on other fancy dancers, A vest? a harness?...
