Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump, Alberta
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump was used for 5,500 years by the indigenous peoples of the plains to kill buffalo by driving them off the 36-foot high cliff. You can still see the cliff today along with an impressive museum all about the practice and the Blackfoot people.
