Traditional Native American Buffalo Jump Landform
  • “Pishkun” is what the Blackfoot People called a Buffalo Jump:
    • Buffalo Jump is the modern-day name for the cliff formations which the Native American tribes of North America used to hunt and kill plains bison en masse.
    • Hunters herded the bison, drove them over a cliff, breaking their legs, and rendering them immobile.
    • Tribe members waiting below closed in with bows (and spears) to finish the kills.
    • Buffalo Jumps were utilized for thousands of years by Native American tribes of North America. This method of hunting was practiced until the 18th century when Europeans introduced horses throughout the continent and greatly transformed tribal hunting practices.
    • “Pishkun” loosely translates as “Deep Blood Kettle” in reference to the valley floor where the bison would be dispatched.
    • This type of hunting was a communal event amongst the entirety of the tribe.
    • Our use of “Pishkun” is in clear reference to the importance of reading and using the environment to your favor as a bowhunter.
