Yorba Linda, CA – Rocking T Ranch (Infrared)


From Yorba Linda, CA my new home town…if you are into horses, you can find these tepees at Rocking T Ranch. Here you can take lessons and ride horses all day long. Here is some info you may not know about tepees…

A tipi (also tepee and teepee) is a Lakota name for a conical tent traditionally made of animal skins and wooden poles used by the nomadic tribes and sedentary tribal dwellers (when hunting) of the Great Plains. Tipis are stereotypically associated with Native Americans in general but Native Americans from places other than the Great Plains mostly used different types of dwellings. The term “wigwam” (a domed structure) is sometimes incorrectly used to refer to a tipi. The word “tipi” comes into English from the Lakota language; the word thípi [ˈtʰipi] consists of two elements: the verb thí, meaning “to dwell”, and a pluralising enclitic (a suffix-like ending that marks the subject of the verb as plural), pi, and means “they dwell”. Lakota verbs can be used as nouns and this is the case with thípi, which in practice just means “dwelling”.
