When you hear the words, "Indian," or "Native American," you probably think of tipis. But, as a matter of fact, most Indians did not live in tipis. Plains Indians groups moved across the Great Plains following migrating herds of buffalo that ranged from Canada to Texas. Plains Indians used the buffalo for many purposes, including buffalo hide coverings for their tipi homes. Dozens of long wooden poles formed the cone shape of the tipi.

The travelers packed all their belongings on the travois, a type of sled pulled by dogs and later by horses. Tipis were used more widely and were built to be much larger after Europeans brought horses to North America in the s.
