Cheyenne Indians

What was cheyenne Indians homes made of?

The Cheyenne lived in tipi-style lodges called xamaa-vee'e in Cheyenne (the name means "ordinary dwelling"). These consisted of a framework of lodgepoles covered with a semi-circular cover made from many hides of buffalo cows, carefully tanned and smoked to make the cover waterproof and then stitched together.

Most lodge covers were left unpainted, but a few were decorated - the Cheyenne favoured stripes in their designs, sometimes half the cover would consist of parallel stripes, the other half having figures of men and animals in hunting or battle scenes.

What were the responsibilities of the Chieftans in Ireland and do they still exist?

The Irish rulers were known as kings until well after the Norman invasion. After this, they were called chieftains, and existed as such until Ireland came firmly under British rule for the first time in the seventeenth century. there still are chieftans (or at least those who claim titles) but no one cares. Theres two funny books Mccarthys bar and the road to mccarthy. They are travelogues by the late Peter McCarthy who in the second one tracks the Mac Cárthaigh Mór (MacCarthy More) to Moroco of all places.

Did Libby Bacon Custer have any children by General George Armstrong Custer?

In James Donovan's A Terrible Glory - (Custer and the Little Bighorn) it states that Custer contracted gonorrhea before his marriage to Elizabeth Bacon, also known as Libby. This most likely explains why they had no children.

BWW

Custer childrenElizabeth Custer never had any children although they wanted some. One theory is that cavalry men such as General Custer, and other men who rode often on horseback, suffered from sperm damage due to the pounding on the testicles from excessive riding. Some of those who hated Custer had told of a child that he had fathered, with a young Cheyenne girl, in 1869.

Though, actually, one of my relatives supposedly lived with the Custers for about 6 years. I have nothing to substantiate this, however, except for the "family story". I am looking for something to "say it is true" but have found nothing yet. It was, actually, a half - sister to my grandmother. If anyone has any information regarding this, please email me at Raysenhell123@aol.com. I sure would appreciate it.

I was wondering if anyone ever heard of the Custers raising a girl for about 6 years. I am trying to find out if a family story about this is true, and if there was ever anything written about a young girl staying with them, that would be great!!

What kind of canoes did the Cheyenne Indians use?

Imagine you are a Cheyenne warrior standing in the middle of 1,000,000 square miles of grassland (the Great Plains) with a canoe. The best thing you can do with it is use it to light a fire.

The Cheyenne, like all Plains tribes, had no use at all for canoes because they constantly travelled in search of buffalo herds which generally migrated north and south seasonally. The few waterways on the Plains flow west to east - the wrong direction for buffalo hunters.

Canoes were used mainly by the Eastern Woodlands and Great Lakes tribes who had access to thousands of miles of waterways radiating in all directions.
