Transcript of Yakama Indians By Sean, Mitchell, Logan

They made teepees and underground homes.
They used long sticks and animal hide to make teepees. Underground homes called earth lodges were used when staying in one place for a long time, Teepees were used when moving or on the go.
The earth lodges were partly underground. Most Yakamas used earth lodges and used tepees when they were going to move. The Yakama Indians crafted spoons
from animal horns and antlers. They also
created traps when hunting big game so when triggered, a rock or heavy weight would fall
on top of the victim. They made hammers
from stone. Tribe members also created
arrowheads and knives from obsidian rock. Tools Weapons Clothes By Sean, Mitchell, Logan Yakama Indians Homes When fighting, they used
