No matter how you spell it; tipi, tepee or teepee, a Reliable Tipi is a charming lodge that kindles nostalgic memories of a simpler time in history. The materials we use are modern and durable; the designs are authentic and replicate the tribal traditions of the western plains indians. The Crow, Sioux, Cheyenne, and Blackfeet styles are our specialties. The original dwellers of tipis were nomadic peoples attuned to the spirits, the land and its' animals, as well as, the seasons. Today we can enjoy a similar spiritual experience that seems to exist within all tipis.

volumes have been written about america's first inhabitants and while we have learned a lot about tipis from our native american friends, it doesn't seem right for us to tell their stories. Here are some links to web sites that you will find very interesting.

MOUNTAIN MAN WALL TENT is a tribute to the historical reenactment of the gatherings of the Mountain Men during the fur-trade era of the American West. These rugged individuals valued survival and independence and would appreciate the quality we build into our mountain man shelter.
