LOL OK now I should explain further.  My friends are full blood Cheyenne Indians.  Their DD (only girl) has a class project that she and her family have to live in a traditional wigwam for a week.  Every kid in the class has to do this.  They have to live like the old ones to a point.  They have done this 3 times now.  The kids love it and so do my friends we are going to visit them next summer and we are going to give it a try :) Oh BTW coolers and they cook over the fire.

if its a wigwam its fine tit wont burn down

It's a project the family is doing. The Original Troll admitted it somewhere around page 2 or 3.

Quoting robyann:

 Wow this is pretty sad. What is the reason they are living in a tent? If it's lack of work or other circumstances out of their control, then I'd offer them a place for a month to get back on their feet. If it's because of drugs call cps.

NO!!!! Those CPS people are horrible. Statistically there are more child fatalities, injuries and sexual assaults at the hands of CPS workers than the parents/families they are supposedly saving the children from. If you don't believe me, look it up online.

They are camping, for an extended period of time. They aren't abusing their kids. The kids will have more comfort being with their family, and trauma to be ripped away. I would only advise them strongly not to put a fire inside the tent...and there's where I start to wonder if your post is for real....

 Oh thx for letting me know, lol. I wasn't going to read through all the replies. That's what I get for jumping into a conversation that has been going on long before I got there lol
