Native Americans lived off of the land. Everything they used and built was made from things found naturally in nature. They lived in caves and also teepees. This type of housing was made from tree branches as well as the hide from animals they had killed.

The Shoshone Indians were known to live in tall, cone-shaped buffalo-hide houses known as teepees. The Western Shoshones, who did not hunt as much as the other Shoshone tribes, built less portable wickiup homes.

The Navajo lived in hogans. They stacked these logs into a shape with 6 or 8 sides or round. The roof was also made out of small logs and covered with earth. Bark and dried mud were used to fill in the cracks. The door always faces east.

The Sioux Native Americans lived in teepees that were constructed of long wooden poles and covered with the hides of buffalo. They chose this style of house because the teepees were easy to take down, transport, and set up again.

That depends on the tribe. In the colder climates, like the northeast, the "Indians" built long houses, bark covered long cabin like structures. In the southwest some used the typical tee-pee which is some long poles tied together at the top and spread out at the bottom and usually covered with animal skins. The Navajo made mud huts too.

The Navajo lived in places called hogan in English and hooghan in Navajo. They are described in the creation stories. One of the two center sacred mountains is supposed to be in the shape of one. It is called Huerfano Mountain in English and Dzil Na'oodilii in Navajo. It is said to be suspended from the sky with sunbeams.

This is where Changing Woman (Asdzaa Nadleehe ) received her puberty, gave birth to her warrior twins, and lived in the first hogan. Dzil Na'oodilii's shape is identified with the perpendicular sides and round roof of the 6 or 8 sided hogan. Navajo mythology says that the 2nd ceremony was performed on earth after Changing Woman had her first and second menstrual periods of flow, and where the hogan was consecrated with the Leaders' House Songs.

Hogans always have a door that faces east. They have no windows and have a smoke hole in the center. Today they often have a stove pipe instead. They are made with logs and covered with earth on the roof. The construction usually starts with four support logs, one for each direction.

They are warm in the snow and cool in the summer because of the insulation. Every part has ceremonial symbolism. Different activities are supposed to take place in certain areas in the hogan.

They can also be built of stone or modern building supplies. Some people still live in them and many people have one for ceremonies even if they don't live in it.

The Erie (really Erielhonan) were an Iroquoian people, meaning they spoke a language belonging to that group of languages and they were long-term enemies of the Iroquois league. Their villages were made up of long houses, each holding many families, surrounded by tall palisade fences.

The long houses were made of a framework of poles covered in bark sheets laid like tiles and weighted with stones or kept in place by an outer framework of poles.
