This tipi was made 10 years ago. It is still standing today.

This is how some Native people of North America use to shelter themselves…

I just love the traditional way… I find it beautiful.

    I think it’d be nice if we could all go back to this simplicity and natural way of life at times :)

    Beautifully captured! I really love your work.

    Thanks BooBoo… I too have a very strong interest in the Native way of life… I do feel better in the woods where I tend to works on traditional projects usually.

    A fabulous composition. Love the POV and the red flowers in the foreground really and another dimension – almost a juxtaposition of old and new….if you know what I mean!!!
