Sioux camp -

This large Sioux camp with its dozens of teepees was located at Pine Ridge in South Dakota – or it was in November 1880, anyway. And, appropriately, the word “teepee” actually translates as “used to live in” – which the Sioux did, as these tents were surprisingly spacious! A typical example could accommodate up to ten adults plus children. Photo Credit: U.S. National Archives and Records Administration
