*They used buffalo for their winter tepees. It was cold so they keep the fur inside but in the summer they would travel then rebulid and put the fur on the outside.* The women would sew different parts of the buffalo together to make warm clothing. They would paint pictures on the clothing.* The Sioux used the meat of the buffalo for food. They would roast it on the fire for food during the winter.
