The Plains Indians were people who did not like to live in one place. They liked to travel around and moved camps at least 3 times a year. For this reason they lived in Tepees, these were like big tents and were easy to put up and take down.
Inside the tepee you would find all the items the people needed to live. They would decorate the insides with pictures, store their weapons and food. They would also have a fire in the middle of the tepee to cook the food. The Indian people used to put buffalo skins on the floor to use as carpets. You would also find their beds.
In the Indian camp everyone had a job to do. The men had to hunt for food, and keep the families safe. The women had to cook all the meals, make the clothes, look after the children and whenever the camp moved they had to take down and put up the tepees.
