According to the information of Lewis and Clark, A sacred cedar post stood at the center of the Mandan village, symbolizing the tribe’s primary cultural hero. The post was surrounded by an open plaza, and at the north end of the plaza was the village’s primary medicine lodge. Forty or fifty additional lodges populated the plaza. The more powerful a family was, or the more significant that family’s ceremonial duties were, the closer its lodge would be to the center. Throughout most of the year, the Mandans lived in these permanent lodges. But in the winter, to avoid brutal storms, they constructed temporary lodges in wooded, low-lying areas adjacent to the river. Indeed Mandans becomes more closer when they are powerful. They also moves together in any situation. People lives in different lodges but yet supported each other because religion hold them together. There is also a class divided due to the power fact. It might differentiate them but in both ways they come closer to the sacred cedar post. This shows the relationship of sacredness puts them together to function as an
The houses Navajo Indians used to live in were called Hogan’s. A Hogan was made of logs, brush, and earth. The Navajo summer houses were also utilized and made of brush with a windbreak.

Geologically ‘almost’ centered in North America, Mandan Indians occupied “the heart of the world”, present day North Dakota, where the Heart River joins the Missouri River. They were once cradled prosperous human settlements, but Mandan Indians are only mentioned in History when Meriwether Lewis and William Clark spent the winter with them in 1804-1805**. Elizabeth A. Fenn took a trip to North Dakota in 2002, and she had an urge to write about Mandan Indians. For twelve years, she spent time to gather and learn every aspect that can bring Mandan Indians. She learned archaeology, anthropology, geology, climatology, epidemiology, and nutritional science, anything that could bring Mandan past. Winner

Two Mandan creation stories—one of migration led by Good Furred Robe, the other of Lone Man and First Creator making land—each convey the position of the Mandan at the center of the world.

In the 1900’s we used to have apaches in the United States. Apaches believed that supernatural beings lived with them. The apaches could not see them, but they were there. How the apaches built there teepees was they would use long poles, and buffalo skin. The women from every family would build the teepees, and it took up to 30 minutes to build. How they would build the teepees is the women would put the long poles up, then they would tie the poles together, and then the women would tightly wrap the buffalo skin around the teepees. The teepees could hold up to more than three families, but it might be a little tight in the teepees. Also the apaches would live in longhouses to, but it took longer to build the longhouse, and the long house could fit more than 7 families in it but it might still be crowded.
