Misconception: All Native Americans, including the Oneidas, lived in tepees. (Tepee is the English assimilation of the traditional Sioux word, tipi.)
Says Watson: "One of the things that really bugs me is that every Indian that lives in this country lived in tepees. A fourth grader thinking that is one thing but when adults say the same thing, that's amazing."
"That's not what Oneidas would have worn. Walking through the woods something like that would have been ripped to shreds. Every nation has their own arrangement of feathers. You could look at it and identify a nation and where they were from. It was a way to recognize different tribes."
