Kickapoo Homes

Q: My 10 yr old son has to do a research paper on the Kickapoo Indian homes (from long ago.) I'm having trouble finding info on just the homes. Thanks in advance for the help.

A: The Kickapoos lived in dome-shaped buildings called wickiups. Here is a picture of a Kickapoo wickiup: http://www.museum.state.il.us/exhibit_tour/historic.html. Even today, the Kickapoos in Mexico live in wickiups, but most American Kickapoos live in modern houses and apartment buildings now, just like you.

Hope that helps!
