Women wore long deer skin dresses and deer skin skirts. They wore feathers and each feather stood for a brave deed a man did in the war. These are some things the Cheyenne’s wore.

ESSAY The Cheyenne people were able to adapt to their envirmront because they made their own clothing, they made their own tepees, and they were good at hunting. One reason how the Cheyenne adapted to their environment was they use animal skin for their clothing. They used deer, elk, and buffalo to keep warm. The men wore long breeches to stay warm in the winter. The second reason the Cheyenne’s adapted to their environment was because they made tepees. They are made of buffalo skin. Tepees make a good home because the Cheyenne’s move a lot. A third reason that the Cheyenne’s adapt to their environment was because they are good hunters. When they hunted they rode horses and they carried their food in a basket. The Cheyenne’s hunted deer and buffalo. These are some of the facts I learned.
Dear journal, I am so upset with my parents. They say we have to move again. And we have to leave my pony, Spur. My cousin Cheyenne is upset too. Cheyenne had an idea to run away with our ponies. So we did, when our parents noticed we were gone they talked to the leader. The leader said yes. So they sent some of these men to find us. They did not find us. So we decided to go back. Spur took us home. Iâ€™m so lucky that I have him. My parents said we can take Spur.
