THE FRIENDLY CROWS IN FESTIVE PANOPLY SHE SKEWERS THE TEPEE TOGETHER WITH WOODEN PINS Most of the Crows now live in small frame houses, but use an ordinary wall tent during summer visits to the mountains or at camps about fairs and race tracks. They pitch the tepee only on special occasions, usually during a fair or race meet of their own. © National Geographic Society Natural Color Photographs by Edwin L. Wished SQUAWS BEAD WHILE THE BRAVES POWWOW The lambrequin lining the Crow tepee was formerly of decorated skin, but has given place to calico of modern design. From the top hang leggings, pouches, and an elk-tooth dress (see, also, Color Plate IX). The young man (center) holds an eagle-feather fan (see, also, Color Plates XII, XIV, and XV).
