Battle Bluff

Local legend has it that an invading native band who had camped on the top of this precipitous bluff were surprised at night when planning an attack on a small fishing village situated on the bank of the river below. All the invaders were forced over the edge except one who was allowed to return to his home village to warn them not to attempt such an attack again.

Something like a buffalo jump found on the prairies.

Dean is right, I know that somewhere in Montana or one of the Dakotas there is a place called "Head Smashed in Rock" where they drove the buffalo over the edge.

Have you found any arrowheads in this area?

I think you might be thinking of 'Head-Smashed-In' Alberta unless there is also one in the States as well.

Yes Mike you are right, I am thinking of the one in Alberta. I knew it was somewhere in North America! Thanks for the correction!
