Can you build a fire inside a teepee?
When lighting a fire inside the tipi, the last thing you want is a smoke screen. Tie the smoke flaps back – our tipis have been designed with a separate smoke cap which sits at the top of the canvas, around the top crown. When a fire is lit inside, you must tie these flaps back to allow the extraction of the smoke.

The sound of rain on the canvas is a soothing, calming way to relax inside your tipi. But, there’s the hole up at the top (where the poles cross and the canvas wraps around). Yes. Rain can come in that hole.
Why do teepee doors face east?
Because of the strong, prevailing winds that swept across the Plains from the west, a tipi was always set up with the entrance facing east. And the entire shelter was always tilted slightly toward the east to streamline the rear, thus lessening the wind pressure on it.
