Wigwam Motels

If you are just a bit familiarized with the Native American culture and traditions, you certainly know some things about at least the basic features, for example the meaning of the word “wigwam”. It is that tent that is made of animal skins that has one to three feathers from a bird of prey. These wigwams are the traditional homes of the Native people in America, so it was a continuous source of inspiration. That must be the reasonable explanation why there used to be a real trend in building wigwam motels back in the 1930s.

These wigwam motels were situated very close to each other, being gathered in real villages. Now there are only three left and two of them are situated in and near United States – Kentucky to be more specific.

And I think is a fairy price to pay just for having fun and watching what it’s like to live in a wigwam.
