"Tipi" is a Lakota (Sioux) word meaning "used for a dwelling". Tipis provided shelter for the people of the Plains. They were made from buffalo hides and were transported when the people moved their camps. The designs of this tipi were derived from dreams and visions, and were believed to offer their owners protection against misfortune and illness.
