  • Tipi doors

    I noticed that a lot of old tipis have no big opening for door,merely a slat that you have go through.Any comment on the advantage/disadvantages of such doors?

    You old dog, how about the advantage of a small door to keep the weather out. Even in Fla. we have to keep the rain from coming inside.

      Thats exactly what i think,but then ,why do they make these big gap of a door nowadays?
      Is this to better accomodate modern male dancers?lol[Some of them ,to quote an announcer look like meadowlarks:big long beaks ,big chest,and little tiny legs!]

        Actually, you are right. In the past I was asked to make tipis with what I would call larger than normal doors to accomidate the larger person and thier clothing. Most tipis today are not made for daily living.

          I was under the impression the round door is lakota, and the slit door is cheyenne style. ? All the lodges in our camp are sioux with the large round door.

            Nope,i think that it is just a modern way.It makes it easier to go in and out,but has little value if you actually live in the tipi.On old pictures ,the door is merely a slit door.When they need it big ,they just fold the cover on the 2 "door poles".

              Here is an email that I received yesterday, I think it is dead on! Just wondering how many of you feel the same way.

              What happened??????
              by badmaninc
              Went to work this morning, stayed late and when I got on this site. Dude WTF happened. People are arguing, threatening to beat the s*** out of each other. 2-3 women picking on a young girl, another guy saying the thread is old used up and no more fun. I thought that I went to a Band or Tribal meeting....

              Tin cones
              by Steve
              Hello,
              What is the best way to cut and make the old time small tin cones that you see on the older strike a lite bags. They are kind of irregular in shape but there nicer than the cloned ones you can buy. Thanks

              Life without hospitals
              by green5
              Hi,

              I suspect that native american lifestyle without technology was the correct one.

              I just wonder how they did without hospitals.

              I know that animals also live without hospitals nor technology totally in respect with nature and happily. So hospitals are...
