Wanuskewin Heritage Park, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada 07

Description : Over 200 years ago Bison roamed the prairies by the thousands and were the single most important animal to First Nations people.
A buffalo jump was a cliff or steep bank over which herds of buffalo were driven to their deaths. Native Americans then carved up the valuable carcasses for food, and skinned the animals for their hides and fur.

At Wanuskewin there are two buffalo jumps that were used regularly over two hundred years ago.
