Cheyenne Indians

The Cheyenne are a group of Native American Indians who
lived in the Great Plains. This region included South Dakota,
Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, and Kansas. Today, only two tribes
of Cheyenne people exist, one is in Oklahoma and one is in
Montana. They originally lived as farmers in earth lodges,
however they eventually became nomadic and lived in tepees.
These tepees were made from wooden poles and animal skins such
as buffalo hides.
The Cheyenne tribe ate a lot of meat from animals that they
could hunt. Sometimes they ate buffalo, elk, bear, or wild

growing naturally. They wore clothes made of animal skins,
ornate head dresses, and warm cloaks made of Buffalo when it was
