Pawnee Lodges •

Pawnee Natives lived in earthen homes. These abodes were shaped with wooden frames and covered with compacted dirt, and the round houses in this picture were built near Loup, Nebraska. When they traveled, Pawnees sheltered in buffalo-hide tipis (teepees). Tipis were the perfect portable tents to keep the travelers warm and comfortable.
