The trope name comes from two particularly common tropes of this: Plains Indian tipis, and Pacific Northwest totem poles. The two are socially organized quite differently; also, the Great Plains tend to be drier than TheOtherRainforest.

* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' has the Quileute wearing animal skins in a flashback. It's called TheOtherRainforest for a reason, people!

A subtrope of InjunCountry. Also see BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins, HollywoodNatives and MagicalNativeAmerican, which are often found in this setting. Also compare {{Mayincatec}}, which is basically this trope applied to the indigenous groups of the Americas south of the Rio Grande.

* ''Film/InTheLandOfTheHeadHunters'' was directed by a RealLife ethnographer of Native Americans named Edward Curtis, and his film is an interesting mixture of truth and fiction. Curtis filmed and used authentic footage of the Kwakwaka'wakw people of coastal British Columbia--their potlach ritual, their dances, their clothes, their villages. But he invented the whole head-hunting business to spice up the story, and he also threw in a whale hunt despite the fact that the Kwakwaka'wakw did not engage in whaling.

* ''Myths of the World: Spirit Wolf'': The "Center for Native Cultures" is in the middle of a desert (and despite the plural, is presented as showing the history of a single tribe), with prominent totem poles and a palisade around the "village" that's either Wild West movie fort or Woodlands [[note]]northeastern US[[/note]] tribal. The hint button is a Plains eagle-feather bonnet. To be fair, Eipix Entertainment is a Serbian company, so they're probably getting their information on Native Americans from Hollywood.

* This is actually adressed in the ''DouweDabbert'' album "The Masked Chieftain": when Douwe, Pief and Domoli visit the tipi-inhabiting tribe where Kijfje is staying, they discover that they have a totem pole. Yellow Fang points out that usually only northern tribes have totem poles, but that Kijfje (who is Dutch) felt that the tribe needed to have one.
