In nature there is no waste, everything has some sort of purpose; buffalo was food, clothing, and housing. The tipis were frame and skin structures, lodge pine trees were abundant for the making of the frames. Families slept in one space, the hyper-interior, a sacred place covered in spiritual artwork painted on by the elders. Easy to disassemble the tipi came down in five minutes; and it only took fifteen minutes for two women to assemble it.
