Did you know that, in the Cree culture, the structure and the construction of a tipi (migwap) are very spiritual and symbolic? It is constructed with 15 poles and each one corresponds to a “teaching”. The “Seven Sacred Teachings” by David Bouchard, presents a generic version of the main teachings, focused mostly on the Anishnabe / Ojibwé culture.
