Located 90 minutes south of Calgary, Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was used by Native people for close to 6,000 years. Native guides describe a way of life at the very place where hunters drove buffalo over the cliff. In our imagination, the cliff still echoes with the voices of the hunters and the thunder of buffalo hooves.
