About Stamp

HEAD-SMASHED-IN BUFFALO JUMP
Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump is an archaeological site in the vicinity of Fort Mcleod, Alberta. For approximately 6,000 years, Aboriginals of the North American plains used their excellent knowledge of topography and buffalo behaviour to lure, herd, and chase large numbers of these animals over a cliff. The site is now an interpretive centre where visitors can explore the cliff and learn its history.

CANADA ON DISPLAY
This stamp was designed by Bradbury Design of Regina, with Catharine Bradbury as design principal and Karin Uusikorpi as associate designer. The challenge of this stamp lay in promoting the diversity and beauty of Canadian tourist attractions in an appealing and effective manner. Aimed at American and international communities, the stamp showcases the talents of the photographer, who set out to capture the essence of this attraction.
