Teepees


Did you ever want to sleep in a teepee? You can at the Yakama Nation in Toppenish. The teepees rent at their campground/RV Park.
Why the Yakama in the Yakima Valley?Several years ago the Yakama Indian Nation resumed the original spelling of the tribe's name, while everything else in the valley continued to use the later version.

I've always been intrigued about how they're constructed. I'd love to see one just to find out. How big are they?

I love learning about different places through CDP. Welcome!

I spent a summer in a tipi a few years ago. I would love to live in one year-round but my wife won't go for it. Imagine that! Thanks for the photo.

I bet it would be fun -- long as you have a sleeping bag BUT not sure I want to cook in one.

Today, "Louis et Mme. la Vache celebrate their first anniversary
