"A woman constructed the first dwelling in the United States. It was a tent of skins stitched together with sinew and waterproofed at the seams with buffalo tallow. A splinter of bone served as a needle. The woman's husband using a sharpened stone cut lodge poles- which he dragged to the home site. The Indian woman's tepee has been copied by the whites and there is no superior in Europe. Manufacture of clothing and furniture took much of the woman's time."-so says Bliss Isley in an interesting article on The First American Home in the April edition of Better Homes and Gardens.
