Artist's Description

The Blackfoot first nation of Canada at Head-Smashed-in Buffalo Jump would hunt bison by wearing wolf skins and chasing them, causing a stampede. The bison would then blindly run over the cliff and fall over 10 metres to their deaths, after which point the Blackfoot would collect their prey. This was a large contributor to the near-extinction and current endangerment of the bison. At the base of the Jump, a bison graveyard still sits today.
