While the general plan of the traditional Indian tipi represents an excellent design as far as smoke exhaustion and the maximum utilization of space are concerned, there are serious limits to its portability. The necessity of providing from 18 to 24 long poles at each site, or of transporting existing poles from site to site, makes the traditional tipi construction suited for the most kinds of camping that is popular.
