C.W. Jefferys' notes about this picture from The Picture Gallery of Canadian History Volume 1
There were two types: Angular and domed. The framework of the former was made by settings poles in the ground at an angle to form a cone. The other was made by tying branches together to form a dome. They were called wigwams.
Both were covered with sheets of birch bark and held down by outside poles.
Building frame of dome shaped lodge.
