Painted Liners

The tiozan or liner is important although one can enjoy his tipi without it during hot summer days. It is a key-element to make a tipi comfortable by controlling draft and smoke. When camping in the forest or on a lakeshore, it will help to keep most insects out which is also appreciated by seasoned campers. For the winter, the liner will prevent the occupants from freezing, it also provides an extra insulation. In the old days, people used to stuff dry grass between liner and cover to increase the insulation of their lodge.
When I was working as a guide, I called my old tipi "sweet home" for many memorable seasons. The lodge was pitched in a charming little clearing bordered by a small creek, and surrounded the dick boreal forest. The lake with its pristine water was a mere arrow shot away. Everybody loved the place, it was enchanting although there were clouds of black flies buzzing around during the day and zillions of mosquitoes trying to break down my patience at night. But thanks to my liner, the tipi was nice and comfortable, sleeping was most of the time very peaceful. As you can see (picture), a liner makes the tipi so comfortable that even babies enjoy it.

Teepee with liner In the old days, life on the Plains was dangerous. Enemy war raids and other attacks were a real risk. Nobody wanted to become a target when in a lodge, so people avoided anything that could make them seen and vulnerable from the outside. A liner would provide such a protection and a good intimacy by keeping the shadows created by the campfire on the tipi cover.
There are no more enemies to fear in the Plains today but still, we all enjoy a little extra privacy!
