Native American Homes

Native Americans lived in a variety of homes depending
on what area or region that they lived in. Many Native American groups
also had more than one home. The Navajo for instance, who lived in
the desert Southwest, were sheep herders and each family had several
homes within their land to stay in as the sheep moved about over their
land which could cover several miles. Other Native American groups
had winter and summer homes.
