Buffalo hide tipi in the lower level of the Plains Indian Museum. It's fairly close to an elevator, and maybe we could fold it up and head right out the loading dock. Not many of these in existence...has to go in the truck.

Tipi (Plateau Nez Perce). While this is not one of the tipis that members of his show put up while touring, it is stunning and must be included. Native Americans were encouraged to pitch their traditional camps while on the road with the Wild West to teach others about their culture and traditions. One of the most unusual photographs I've ever seen is the one picturing tipis set up on the grounds of the Colosseum during the show's 1890 visit to Rome.
