9781894004831: Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump

Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Alberta is one of the oldest, largest, and best-preserved buffalo jump sites in North America and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1981. Author Gordon Reid has compiled a history of this significant site, describing the importance of the buffalo to Native peoples, how the jump was used, and the traditions and skills surrounding the hunt. He also looks at the excavation of the site, explaining how archaeologists uncovered artifacts, and what they learned about the history of the site and the people who used it. Also included is an overview of the resources offered by the Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump interpretive centre.

This book, originally published in 1993, has been a very popular resource for tourists, educators, students, and people interested in Alberta's heritage. Completely updated and redesigned for this new edition, it will be the only book available that explains, in depth, the vital role of Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Native history.
