How big is a tipi
Q: How many people can fit inside an Arapaho tipi?
A: It depends on the size of the tipi. Typically they are
large enough for eight to twelve people. But like any other building, tipis can
vary a lot in size. Some travel tipis were only intended to sleep a few people,
and some ceremonial tipis could have dozens of people sitting in them at once.
Hope that helps!
