First Peoples Buffalo Jump, Ulm, MT



Before they had the horse, the Indians would drive buffalo off cliffs. This is one of them. The visitor's center tells the whole story with a talk and a very nice interpretive center. A young boy acts as a decoy. He must be very careful and find himself a place to hide so he does not go down with the buffalo. Pete is our decoy.


One of the tricks they use is to disguise some of their people as wolves to help direct them into a funnel leading to the cliff edge.
I love to duplicate the picture on display. Bob, Roger, and Carol do the honors.
