INDIAN DWELLINGS

Indian hunting lodge

Indian tepeeHunting Lodge

Tom Blue Wolf and his crew from Earth Keepers have constructed a replica of a Native American hunting lodge from the 1600s. Built of wood logs and a mud cob reinforced by river reed, this type of structure was used by the Creek, Cherokee, and other woodland Indians of the southeast.

Plains Indian Tepee

Tepees like our replica Plains Indian tepee were not used in this area, but we use the structure for Native American education and to contrast with the mud and cob structures built in this area.

These American Indian dwellings are used to teach about the history and peoples of this land, with special emphasis on how their survival was dependent on respect for and careful use of the environment.

The collection contains 288 pieces of Southeastern American Indian projectile points, gorgets, atlatl weights and other artifacts. Part of the large collection is on permanent display, with other pieces used for educational programming and future research.
