Wichita Tribe's Distinctive Housing

Anadarko, OK, United States
14 Kudos
The Wichita tribe lived on the central and southern plains, but were later resettled forcibly to Oklahoma, and maintain their tribal complex at Anadarko, about 50 miles southwest of Oklahoma City. A distinctive feature at their center here is a sample of the housing that the people used - and I've seen old pictures of settlements from the 19th century. These were no tipis, but rather sturdy houses with grass covering a tall frame of forked cedar poles. The houses were well constructed and lasted for years. This model, which one can freely enter, is outside the tribal complex, and gives it a distinctive look.
