These indians lived in tipis because they followed the buffalo.

The Cheyenne Indian tribe

      We learned that they hunted deer and buffalo,and they were nomadic because they lived in tipis made from buffalo hide.  And they fished as well, and lived in the Great Plains. They were also very religous, and finally they rode horses.
