One of the most important archaeological sites of the late-prehistoric Plains Indians. The Vore site is a natural sinkhole that was used as a bison trap from about 1500 to 1800 A.D. At least five different tribes used the Vore site during 300 years and at least 10,000 bison were trapped there.
The Vore Buffalo Jump is open to the public during the summer months. Visitors have the opportunity to learn about the increasingly famous Vore Site as well as the larger picture of the cultures that Plains Indians built around the buffalo.
At least two staff members are present to explain how the Indians used the sinkhole as a trap, how they produced many food and other products from the buffalo, and how the Vore Site was part of Plains Indian history and culture.
Tours are also available throughout the year by special arrangement (please contact [email protected]).
