Captured last autumn at FortWhtye Alive, our Nature Center, on the southwest edge of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada….Notice that there is a travois in front of the third teepee…a travois is a device used by Native North Americans of the Great Plains for transporting their tepees and household goods. It consisted of two poles, lashed one on either side of a dog or, later, a horse, with one end of each pole dragging on the ground. It had straps or wooden crosspieces between the poles near the open end that served as a carrier. Like the sledge, the travois was used by Native Americans before any use of wheels was known to them.
