What are 5 houses of Native Americans?

Historically, many different types of dwelling were constructed by North American natives, depending on available resources. Some were made to be almost permanent, but most were temporary and were relatively flimsy structures. Five types of dwelling would be:

  1. The wikiup. This was a very small, temporary dwelling constructed by Apaches and other desert tribes; it had a framework of branches and brushwood and could be left mainly uncovered or have a covering of more brushwood, dry grass and/or trade cloth, tree bark or hides. A wikiup could be constructed very quickly and might only be used for one night, or much longer.
  2. The longhouse. This large and almost permanent dwelling was used by eastern woodlands tribes with access to large quantities of timber, poles, tree bark and long roots for use as rope. It was long, tall, wide and rectangular in plan, with either flat or rounded ends and either a pitched or rounded roof. Sleeping platforms were made along both internal walls and fire-pits were made along the central passageway - several families could live inside.
  3. The wigwam. This was a small and temporary dwelling used by eastern woodlands people - always using a framework of poles covered in birchbark sheets. Either domed or cone-shaped and only large enough for a few people, the wigwam was used by groups while travelling or hunting.
  4. The Plains lodge or tipi. Often very large and capable of housing several generations of an extended family, tipiswere temporary dwellings that could be rapidly put up and taken down. They used a basis of a tripod of three poles (four in the case of the Crow tribe) tied together at the top; against these further poles were placed before the cover of buffalo cow-hides was wrapped around and pinned down the front with pointed wooden skewers. Large stones were sometimes placed on the lower edge to keep out snow or wind (rings of stones today mark places where tipis were erected in the distant past).
  5. The plank house of the west coast. Western coastal tribes were the only native Americans to develop the skill of splitting huge cedar logs into planks, which were used to construct houses and sometimes sea-going boats. In front of each house would be erected the totem poles giving the family and clan symbols of those within.

What is the American Indian translation of white man?

Since you posted this under "Cheyenne Indians" I guess you mean "what is the Cheyenne translation for White Man?".

The Cheyenne term ve'ho'e really means "spider" but it was used to describe white people; some say it is because white settlers fenced their lands, like a spider builds a web. Others say the word is really 'e-ve'hoo'e, "he is wrapped up", referring to the many layers of clothing worn by white people - the natives said that whites wear far too many clothes.

Among the Crows of Montana, the term for a white person is baashchiili, which is made up of baa ("someone") and shiili ("yellow") - in other words "a person who is yellow".

The Teton or Lakota Sioux used the term wasichun, which can mean anything sacred or mysterious as well as "white man".

How many Cheyenne people are left?

At first contact it is estimated there were around 3,500 combined Cheyenne and Sutaio people.

Recent census returns give about 9,945 Northern Cheyenne and 8,000 Southern Cheyenne, but these figures are far from accurate since the Cheyennes have intermarried with the Arapahos, other native tribal groups and with white Americans.

How did the cheyenne Indians get their tribe name?

"Cheyenne" is not the real name of the tribe - they call themselves Tse-tsehese-staestse (pronounced something like tsis-tsis-tsas), which like most native tribal names means "the human beings". Each tribe considered themselves to be "real people", everyone else was subordinate and generally subhuman.

The name Cheyenne probably comes from the name given to them by their Sioux (Lakota) neighbours. The Lakota word shahiameans "to speak a different language", so Shahiyena means "people who speak a different language".

Almost all modern Native American tribal names are incorrect in the same way - they are the names applied to them by other tribes, not the tribe's own name for themselves.

How do you say Dakota in Cheyenne language?

The Cheyenne language has this term for South Dakota, meaning "Sioux Place":


Does the NASD still exist?

In July of 2007 the National Association of Securities Dealers (the "NASD") and the

member regulation, enforcement and arbitration functions of the New York Stock Exchange merged into a new entity established to take over the "self-regulatory" duties formerly performed by these entities. The new entity has been named the "Financial Industry Regulatory Authority" ("FINRA"). While in the past, investors who had disputes with brokerage houses were required to file claims with the NASD or the New York Stock Exchange due to contractual provisions in new accounts documents, in the future these claims will be filed with FINRA. It can be presumed that the rules and regulations in effect the NASD will be carried forward at FINRA as regards investor fraud claims.

What weapons did the Cheyenne Indians make?

Cheyenne weapons were much the same as for all Plains tribes. The main weapon was always the bow and arrows, the bow being about 45 to 52 inches long if made of wood (ash or hickory) and about 33 inches if made of sheep horn and sinew. Arrows were 25 to 28 inches and often painted with rings around the feathered end; feathers were of hawk, eagle or turkey. By the mid-19th century all Cheyenne arrow points were of metal obtained from white traders.

Some trade axes ("tomahawks") were used, plus war clubs with stone heads or shaped like a gunstock inset with metal knife blades (knives were also a common trade item).

Cheyenne warriors also obtained guns from trading posts, sometimes old and poorly-made flintlock and percussion weapons, but sometimes up-to-date repeaters such as the Henry rifle. They also obtained percussion pistols such as the Navy Colt, but preferred their own native weapons.

Lances were generally the emblem of a particular warrior society such as the Dog Soldiers.
