Overview

The Wichita Indians: People of the Grass House by Susan A Holland



The Wichita Indians shared the Great Plains, in the central United States, with a variety of animals, including millions of bison, elk, and birds.



The Wichita built their homes of poles and prairie grass, which grew up to 12 feet tall. These unique, beehive-shaped grass houses were exclusive to the Wichita, housed extended families, and could last up to 14 years. Tools, fashioned from chert and bison bones, were used to construct homes and cultivate garden plots.
