Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Park
Located In south-west Alberta, the remains of marked trails and an aboriginal camp, and a tumulus where vast quantities of buffalo (American Bison) skeletons can still be found, are evidence of a custom practiced by aboriginal peoples of the North American plains for nearly 6,000 years. Using their excellent knowledge of the topography and of buffalo behavior, they killed their prey by chasing them over a precipice; the carcasses were later carved up in the camp below. We will Assemble at South Glenmore Park in SW Calgary at 8AM for the 222 km drive to Head-Smashed-in Buffalo Jump via Hwy 22 south through Diamond Valley Longview; then west on Hwy 520 to Claresholm; South on Hwy 2 to Hwy 785 to the park gates.
