Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump | Canada

a? A rather strange name, but it actually makes sense when you know what’s behind that name. The buffalo jump was used for 5,500 years by the indigenous peoples of the plains to kill buffalo by driving them off the 11 metre high cliff. 

For thousands of years the native people of the plains hunted the North American bison. The plains Indian lifestyle became dependent on hunting buffalo, and they adapted numerous hunting techniques to obtain their livelihood. 

A preprinted matching ‘stamp’ and 4 more low value definitives depicting insects. But what is the 1c USA stamp doing here?
