Bowers are the houses the Siyee build. Some bowers are built high in trees, but most are built on the ground, around trees. They are only distributed in the Tribes, as the Siyee don't like to be isolated from the rest. The Bowers consist of a frame of wood, with a membrane stretched between them. Most bowers are the same size, but some Siyee have special bowers; Speaker Sirri has a slightly bigger bower as she is the Head Speaker. The Speaker's Bower, in the Open is about twice the size of a common bower because gatherings are held there.
