A tipi was originally made out of birchbark, followed by animal skins and today of canvas, it's a remarkable durable dwelling. Giving warmth during harsh winters, providing comfort from hot summers and keeping dry those inside during heavy rain. Its portability came in handy, packed quickly when needed to move with the bison herds for example. A ceremony was going to take place with the Stoney Nakoda Nations and Parks Canada, was happy to find the tipi on the valley below Cascade Mtn. With the drama in the sky, how could I not take this picture on a beautiful cool morning.
Until next moment,
