At first Peoples Buffalo we learn about driving buffalo off a clif before the Indians had horses. Part of the ritual involved pretending to be wolves,d our group loves to pretend. I think it is great for the Interpretive center to have these skins available for us to have fun with. It is a great help to our understanding.
