Inscription.  "The Apsáalooke say that a good home has a road to it. This is in reference to a home where people like to come and visit.... At a good home visitors are always welcome." Excerpted from Apsáalooke Social and Family Structure, by Dale Old Horn and Timothy McCleary

The traditional lodge (tipi) of the Northern Plains tribes is a home of many names: Thipi (Sioux - "used for dwelling in"), ashtáale (Crow - "real home"), veer (Northern Cheyenne- "dwelling"), bajiishka'ogaan (Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa- "a lodge with a pointed top"), or akitanam (Confederated Salish Kootenai- "a structure in which people live"). These are only a few of the words used, for each tribe has its own.
The tipi had great cultural significance and ceremony attended all aspects of its use. The integration of physical and spiritual worlds resulted in a structure that is boat universal on the Plains, and as diverse as the tribes who called them home. Today, the tipi remains a cultural cornerstone in an ever-changing world.
