Because the Blackfoot, Blood and Piegan tribes are so culturally intertwined, the same description is used for their tipis.

From Volume 18: Their tents are large and clean. The devices generally used in painting them are taken from beasts and birds; the buffalo and the bear are frequently delineated.

The country they inhabit abounds with animals of various kinds; beaver are numerous, but they will not hunt them with any spirit, so that their principal produce is dried provisions, buffalo robes, wolves, foxes, and other meadow skins, and furs of little value.
