long from times the Soviet Union. Then all doit was more difficultly. We
on grains collected a material and information. I was studied at school,
but a lot of time carried out in two places, - library and in a forest. We
tried to not be limited to the books, but to make something in practice, to
receive real experience.
Ours tipi,our old tipi, - one of very first, which were made in Russia. It
s made by our older brothers per 1975-1979 20 centuries. We lived in much to
it, it became simply Sacred for us. We smoked in it Pipes and were
prayedmany times. New tipi we have sewed recently, because our Club and our
families have grown, it was necessary more place. Children requirethe
special care, as well as our parents, which sometimes also will carry out
with us time in tipi. We have not only photo materials, but also vidio,
