A little graphic but I thought this was a interesting display.
One of the outlooks/cliffs in Billings Montana is called sacrifice cliff. It's name originated from a story about Native Americans. In the display here it describes the story. The native Americans were dealing with the small pox epidemic of 1837 with hard losses, a group of Native Americans believe they needed to offer sacrifices to cure the disease from their people. Sixteen young native American warriors drove their horses blindfolded off a cliff to provide sacrifices to the great spirit.
