That looks to me like a wigwam, not a tipi. The wigwam was an eastern woodland Indian shelter which used bark or matting. The tipi was a western plains shelter using buffalo hide.http://woodsrunnersdiary.blogspot.com/
No, this is a tepee. A wigwam has a dome shape. It is the structural configuration, not the material that covers the dwelling that determines the classification.
