What’s New

Next OAS General Meeting March 7, 2017

Our special guest speaker will be Jack Brink
of the Royal Alberta Museum, on
“Thundering Herds: The Great Buffalo Jumps of the Northern Plains”

The most productive killing event ever devised by humans was driving large herds of buffalo over cliffs.  The story of how Indigenous people of the Plains managed to get herds of buffalo to plunge to their death is remarkable in its complexity, ingenuity and danger. Brink will share the story of these great buffalo kills, with a focus on what may be the greatest buffalo jump of all, Head-Smashed-In, in Alberta, Canada.
