The Buffalo Jump

July 26 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Today our story is The Buffalo Jump by Peter Roop, illustrated by Bill Farnsworth, read by Dakota Uåçi Belinda.

About the story:  Little Blaze wants to be the buffalo runner who leads the herd over the buffalo jump cliff. Each jump means food for his people and new buffalo skins for robes and lodges. A jump is also a chance for the buffalo runner to earn a new name. But, his father has chosen his brother – Curly Bear – instead, and Little Blaze is angry. When Curly Bear stumbles while leading the herd, will Little Blaze be able to forget his hurt and anger to save his brother?
