Prayer Teepee
Apache, OK
Oklahoma Welcome Center
east of Sallisaw, OK
The Prayer Teepee was built in 1980. [map]

These stylized teepees are located at the Oklahoma Welcome Center rest area on I-40 near mile marker 316. There are other teepee rest areas like this on I-40 and I-35. For more, see this website. [map]

Creek Freedman Shrine
Muskogee, OK
This Creek Freedman Shrine was built in the early 1990s by Napoleon Davis. The cultural and visitors center never actually opened and Davis passed away around 2000. The building has been abandoned for many years. For more, see this website. [map]

Venture River Ride
Myrtle Beach, SC
I-90 rest area
Wasta, SD
The Venture River Ride at Family Kingdom Amusement Park features these two small teepees. This kiddie ride was probably modeled after the Lazy River concept of local motels (with little boats instead of inner tubes). [map]

This stylized, concrete teepee is located at the I-90 rest area just east of exit 98. I believe all of the South Dakota I-90 rest areas have these. [map]

TeePee Park
Sierra Blanca, TX
The TeePee Park is a rest area off I-10. I have seen old postcards of this place but I don't know how old it is. There are three concrete teepees with picnic tables underneath them. There are very similar teepees in Redford, TX. [map]

Wood's Boots
Colorado City, TX
2017: 2021:
These two teepees are located next to Wood's Boots. They were painted white around 2020. [map]

Sit 'N Bull
Freeport, TX
The Sit 'N Bull bar was built in 1979. It is home to the Osage Tribe #4 of the Improved Order of Red Men. For more, see this website. [map]

Kanab, UT
2014: 2023:
This Teepee was built for Gift City around 1977. By 1987, the business had become the Kansas Wonderstone Gift Shop. Since at least 2007, the building has housed the Nature's Showcase gift shop. By 2021, the Teepee had been transformed to look like the Thor's Hammer rock formation in nearby Bryce Canyon National Park. For more, see this website. [map]

Parson's Indian Trading Post & Museum
Wisconsin Dells, WI
Parson's Indian Trading Post & Museum opened in 1914 as a general store which also sold Native American hand-crafted goods. Despite all the transitions and reinvention going on in The Dells, this place is still in business. By 2023, the teepee and Indian statue were gone. [map]

The Tee-Pee
Cheyenne, WY
The Tee-Pee was most likely a roadside stand when it was first built. At one time, it was used as the VFW and Boy Scout building. In recent years, it housed "Thunder Road Cycle", a motorcycle shop. The building now houses the WYCO Baseball Academy. There was an Indian Village Motor Lodge in Cheyenne with a central teepee. However, the building's shape is different and it was at a different location. For more, see this website. [map]

Egbert, WY
This Teepee is now used as a private residence. It was built as "The Warwhoop": a combination gas station, bar, gift shop, and convenience store. It has been here since at least the 1960s but it has probably been around since at least the 1930s. For more, see this website. [map]

Saamis Teepee
Medicine Hat, AB
The Saamis Teepee is 215 feet tall making it the world's largest teepee. It was built for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. After the Olympics, it was moved to Medicine Hat. [map]
