Summer 1978 #tbt

This is where I spent my summer in 1978. #tbt

OSR Tipi Exterior

This is the tipi I lived in as part of the staff at Onteora Scout Reservation in upstate New York. This was taken as they were finishing pitching the tipi. I was part of the Troop Leader Training group that ran at OSR before the start of camp, so I was not able to help with the tipi set up, but was able to go visit the tipi for a few minutes while TLT was running. Here’s the interior.

This was my first “dream job”. I taught native crafts, wore native clothing much of the time and loved every minute of it. I learned a lot that summer.
