Description


These one man shelter wigwam type structures were used especially by Nomadic Apache hunters. Mostly to sleep or just stay warm in cold weather.
All other activities were performed outdoors.
They were usually left behind, but occasionally hunters would take them along.
Another strange site right in the middle of civilization, but that's Arizona

I read they just tied a bundle of sticks together on one end, spread them out and piled grass if available and brush on top.

It's really amazing that they could whip up a shelter with brush that's laying around, and not leave any trash behind! (they could probably build a shopping mall with popcicle sticks and some duct tape!) Great shot!
