Brush Shelter (Book One, Card 9)

These house-making tricks were used by almost every tribe of Native Indians. Apache is a tribe who use such kind of Tepees for their living.  The Apache tribe’s residents resided in one of three types of homes. The first is the teepee, which was used by those who lived on the plains. The wickiup, an 8-foot-tall (2.4 m) frame of wood kept together with yucca fibers and covered in brush, is another form of housing used by Apache groups in the highlands. If a family member died while living in a wickiup, the wickiup was charred. The hogan, an earthen structure in the desert that was good for keeping cool in the hot weather of northern Mexico, is the final form of housing.
