The Clay Banks buffalo jump near Cartwright, Manitoba, Canada.

The Clay Banks, an approximately 2500 year-old site was known to be used by Sonata and Besant First Nations as a hunting tool. Hunters would stampede American Bison over these cliffs, later carving up the animal carcasses below for use as food, tools, and clothing.

At the foot of the Clay Banks the Badger Creek flows past the Clay Banks, fall ice starting to form on its surface.
