Apache, Oklahoma: 24-hr. Prayer Teepee

Sort of like an always-open tiny church, but designed for Native American spiritual appeal.

Coblake St., Apache, OK
Across the street from the Sonic. It is white in the moonlight next to a church. Sign is clearly visible from the road. It reads "Prayer Teepee."

Inside the teepee.

Nice little teepee chapel. Inside is surprisingly large.

Teepee church.

24-hr. Prayer Teepee

Was open for our 2:00 am visit. Easy to enter and not crowded at that time. May want to bring a flashlight, as the light switch inside the teepee didn't work.

24-hr. Prayer Teepee

On the way into this little town is a big teepee with the incomprehensible sign of being open 24 hrs. Apache is also home to the annual RattleSnake festival in April. Driving further down the same road you see the castle turrets of the library and municipal building on either side.
