The Clay Banks

The Clay Banks (buffalo jump), a site about 2,500 years old site, used by Sonata and Besant peoples 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. 

To find the Clay Banks turn off #5 Highway , just north of Cartwright.  There are signs to indicate the turn and further directions.
