Hunting for Buffalo
The Blackfoot killed the buffalo in a very interesting way.
Together in small groups, Blackfoot men would chase the buffalo herds toward
large cliffs. Once the buffalo were scared, the buffalo would jump off the
cliff in fright, falling to their death. Visit Head-Smashed-In Buffalo

Because of the carelessness of the Europeans, some say there were only six pairs of buffalo left!
Thank goodness a rancher realized that he had the last buffalo and began
breeding them. Today, buffalo are found in ranches all over North America
and have even been reintroduced in some national parks and reservations.
