Kahns of the Kaibab Paiute

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 25 July 2018 in Documentary & Street.

The shelters for sleeping are called kahns and were used the Kaibab Paiute peoples for sleeping. They were made of sticks and brush. In winter, layers of deer hide, juniper bark, or rabbit skins were added to ward off the cold. The Paiutes moved each season to find food and water.

A fine capture of this novel sleeping arrangement. The nomatic movement of the tribe solves the need for new pastures, games and water.

I guess if they moved each season, they didn't put too much work into the shelters.
