Description(Ulm, MT) Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) announced today:

What: There's No Place Like Home: Traditional Native American Dwellings in North America.

Join Us at First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park to learn about a variety of dwellings used by Native American peoples across North America. Each tribe needed housing that fit their traditional lifestyle and the climate of the area in which they lived. Naturally, Native Americans used available materials to develop dwellings that best fit their respective circumstances, including tipis, earth lodges, pueblos, igloos, and grass houses.
This program is presented by Montana State Parks┬┐ staff.
