Tipis, Tepees, Teepees.

Let’s Get to the Point

No Matter How You Spell It, There Is Nothing Like an Earthworks Tipi/Tepee/Teepee

To the Native American of the Great Plains, a tipi meant one thing…home.
In fact, tipi is the Lakota word for “living in.” Today a tipi can be many things: temporary or permanent, traditional or modern. You can transport and pitch a small tipi at a campground, reenactment or rendezvous for the weekend. Place a tipi on an elaborate deck and add all the amenities of the finest resorts. Kids love backyard tipis. And just as the Native Americans did, some of our customers live in their tipi full time and enjoy a closeness to the rhythms of nature that is difficult to find in our modern world. However you spell it or use it, it’s tough to beat the original design of such a perfect structure.
