Every family in town has a teepee.
It is usually in their back yard or out at their summer cabin.
It is made of white canvas.They cover the ground with branches 
of fur.In the middle there is rocks in a circle for the fire.
On Saturday there was a walking out ceremony in one of the teepee.
It is an old tradition .When a baby turn one year of age,he is in the teepee
with the elder of the family and then take his first step outside holding 
either a gun if its a boy and a pot or a broom if its a girl.
The boys will then become a good hunter and provider for the family
and the girl will stay home to cook and clean......
