World’s Largest (Saamis) Teepee, Medicine Hat Canada

Medicine Hat is the site of the World’s Largest Teepee, which stands 215 feet tall/or, 20 stories high. It was originally built for the 1988 Calgary Olympics and three years later was moved to it’s current location.

Note the Tiny people walk underneath it for frame of reference


The originally name for the town was Saamis, the Black foot word for the tall feather headdress medicine men wore, hence English derivation for the town’s name.
