Digging into Idaho’s hunter - gatherer past

Clues unearthed at Challis site suggest bison hunters used area up to 900 years ago

National Park Service archeologist Ken Cannon holds a weathered bone from a Challis-area excavation that may have come to rest at the base of a large cliff in the aftermath of a Native American bison kill hundreds of years ago. Cannon is seeking to determine if the cliff was used by hunters as a traditional bison jump site, as an archeological dig in the early 1970s suggested. Photo by Jason Kauffman
