Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump is a cliff, exposed in the Porcupine Hills outside of Fort Macleod, where the foothills of the Rocky Mountains meet the Great Plains. The Jump was used as a method of hunting practiced by aboriginal peoples of the North American plains for nearly 6'000 years.

In 1981, the UNESCO designated Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump as a World Heritage Site.
