Houses of Bark
Tipi, Wigwam and Longhouse : Native Dwellings : Woodland IndiansUnknown - 1990
From the Northwest Territories of Canada as far southeast as Virginia in the United States, tree bark became indispensable to the everyday life of Native peoples. Simple to cut, light to carry, easy to work with, it was used for food, containers, clothing, and canoes. But nothing showed their skill, ingenuity, and inventiveness as the way bark was used to make shelters.
