Little Turtle’s Tipi was inspired by a beautiful gift.
My husband and I met at an American Indian reservation and were later married in a custom-made tipi in our backyard in Bozeman, Montana.
Unfortunately, a windstorm later ripped the entire side of out of our tipi and not knowing what to do, we decided to donate the canvas to our friend who runs a Lakota Sweat Lodge in Utah.
While visiting those same friends a year later, they gifted us with a little tipi, made from the same canvas of our former wedding chapel for our newborn son, nicknamed Little Turtle.
That tipi has brought so much joy to our sons and has since inspired me to create beautiful, one-of a-kind, authentic children’s tipis.
