Buffalo Jump

Heard on the radio the other day that the state park formerly known as “Ulm Pishkun Buffalo Jump” is now called “First Peoples Buffalo Jump.” The reason for the name change: apparently, the buffalo jump was used by more than one native tribe – so the plural “first peoples” was chosen to reflect that several tribes used it. Learn more about the park at the Montana Outdoors site.

Bonus Trivia: the word “pishkun” is thought to mean “deep blood kettle.” Sounds like the name of a rock band!
