Unfortunately English woods don't have straight poles, well not that I could find. So My Teepee has to make do with the nearest I could get to straight. This means they are crooked. However I am sure that the native American tribes didn't always have the perfect poles available, and they did all right. So that's it, a Teepee with bent poles.
My Teepee will not be made of nice white canvas either like the ones you see in films. I shall cover it with whatever I can find. In America they used Buffalo hides, but we don't have them, so I am going out tomorrow, I mean later today, to shoot some cows that are grazing in a field not too far away.
Here are some photos of progress on the project so far.
|It doesn't look it, but these poles are eighteen feet in height.|
|This is not finished. But I was keen to see what it looked like.|
|It was getting dark by this stage.|
I was joking about shooting the cows. I shall do what the native Americans did and use a bow and arrows.
Good night, I mean good morning. God bless.
