BIG TIPI EXPO 2000 • Give your child the gift of imagination. - "To the Native American who lived on the plains the tipi was home. lt was a practical shelter, warm in Winter, cool in summer, able to withstand the roughest weather. lt was moveable and easy to set up. lt satisfied the owner's aesthetic and spiritual sensibilities. The tall slender cone filled with diffuse light provided a space in which the spirit could soar. The circular plan mirrored the natural cycles around them the Earth the Sky the Seasons and Life itself"
Edward S. Curtis, "The North American Indian"
