What were the lodges made out of?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Lodges were traditionally made out of various materials depending on the region and culture. For example, Native American lodges called tepees were made from animal skins, like buffalo hide, stretched over a framework of wooden poles. In other parts of the world, lodges may have been made from materials such as bark, grass, thatch, or mud.

What role did great Britain play in the conflict between the US and American Indians on the westren frontier?

User Avatar

Asked by Nanibi

Great Britain played an important role in the conflict between the United States and American Indians on the western frontier. They had a strong presence in the region and sought to maintain their power and influence in North America. In the late 1700s Great Britain signed several treaties with some of the Native American tribes such as the Iroquois and Delaware Nations in which they promised to protect these communities from US expansion. As the US continued to establish new settlements often in violation of these treaties Great Britain sought to mediate the conflict and protect their Native allies. In some cases British soldiers were dispatched to the western frontier to protect Native American lands and support their sovereignty.

Great Britain also provided support to the Native Americans in other ways. They supplied weapons ammunition and other supplies to the tribes and provided them with access to the British trading networks. In addition the British Crown offered refuge to some of the Native American leaders such as the Shawnee chief Tecumseh and provided a safe haven for them to organize and plan their resistance to US expansion.

What did the cheyenne tribe do with there hair?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

If you mean "what hairstyles did the Cheyenne have?", the answer is that hairstyles changed over time.

Women at first wore their hair braided with fringed rolls of deerskin attached; later the braids were folded up two or three times and tied behind the head. About 1830 women began to wear a braid each side, doubled up and fastened behind the ear. At all times some women chose to wear their hair long and loose (headbands were never a feature of Cheyenne women's hairstyles, until modern times when they began to fall in with the White American "Indian princess" fantasy).

Men had typically worn a roach (a red-dyed deer hair ornament attached to the head with a bone "roach spreader"); early on they had no scalplock. Then came the pompadour, a fashion for brushing up the frontal hair and smearing it with clay so it stood erect, or tied back with a leather strap, often with strings of shells at each side of the face and the back hair braided. Sometimes one side of the head was shaved, the long hair on the other side being braided. These braids were usually wrapped with otter fur.

A distinctive style of some Cheyenne warriors was to grow the frontal hair in a long fringe which would be stiffened, brushed up and allowed to fall to one side like a fan, the remaining hair being braided.

What animals did the Cheyenne inaidiains huht?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Horses (Cheyenne mo'ehe-no'ha or domesticated elk) and dogs (hotame or hotameho) were the main animals kept by all Plains tribes. After contact with white people they sometimes used donkeys and mules (vo'ho'kohta and a'kee-vo'ha) but these would be rare.

Since there is a Cheyenne term for "my pet" (na-htotse), some small dogs and perhaps other animals such as foxes may have been kept as pets by children.

How many Cheyenne Indians are still alive?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

At the time of first contact with white people there were around 3,500 Cheyennes (including the related Sutaio). They never came together as one large combined group but remained in small hunting bands until forced onto the reservations.

Today there are around 3,300 Northern Cheyenne in Montana and 8,000 Southern Cheyenne in Oklahoma. Intermarriage with other tribes makes exact counts difficult.

What was the Cheyenne's home like?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Cheyenne (really two tribes: the Tsetsehesestahase and the So'taa'e) used only tipi-style lodges, called xamaa-vee'e or ordinary dwellings in Cheyenne.

Cheyenne tipis were rarely decorated, except for those of leaders and medicine men; a common style had the upper portion painted in a solid colour such as red, sometimes with figures of horses, warriors, hunters and buffalo running around the entire cover. Sometimes stripes were used, often just on one half of the cover.

How did the cheyenne Indians get their tribe name?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The word "Cheyenne" is Siouan in origin, and traditional Cheyennes prefer the term "Tsistsistas." As a tribal nation, the Cheyennes were formed from several allied bands that amalgamated around the Black Hills in the early eighteenth century to become one of the most visible Plains Indian tribes in American history.

Why did the Cheyenne live in lodges and tepees?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

For tribes who migrated with the seasons, teepees were an adaptation to the need to be able to travel lightly and reestablish themselves quickly. These folded up and were easily moved. Also, the shape enabled them to have a chimney for smoke to escape.

ANSWER:

Not all Native American's lived in tipis (the correct spelling). Only the Plain's Natives lived in tipis, ie: Lakota (also known as the Sioux), Crow, Cheyenne, Blackfoot, among others. The tipi utilized little wood, which was very limited among the plains, was constructed mainly out of hides, and allowed the natives to ventilate smoke, keep out the rain, and create an updraft to cool the inside during the summer. The rest of Native Americans lived in permanent or seasonal dwellings.
