Script Details

Normalement, une centaine de familles participaient à la chasse. Les cours d’eau étaient passés à gué, puisqu’il n’y avait pas de ponts. La rivière Saskatchewan étant la plus large et la plus dangereuse, nous étions soulagés après l’avoir traversée… Nous avions toujours un chef de caravane et ses ordres étaient respectés. Un drapeau flottait au-dessus de sa charrette. Il guidait les gens et nous le suivions. Lorsque le troupeau était affolé, il prenait l’allure d’une masse, sombre, solide et mouvante. À cette époque, nous ne pensions jamais que les bisons seraient exterminés, car il y en avait des milliers et des milliers… Tous les cavaliers de la chasse avaient des fusils, des canons simples à platines à silex, certains, à chargement par la bouche avec capsules… Les cornes de poudres et les sacs de balles étaient portés en bandoulière. À bout portant, les fusils pouvaient tuer l’animal… Lorsque la mise à mort était terminée, les femmes aidaient à rapporter la viande; ensuite venait le dépeçage.

Usually, there would be about 100 families going on the hunt. All streams were forded as there were no bridges. The Saskatchewan River was the largest and most dangerous and it was a relief after it was crossed… We always had a leader in our caravan and his orders were respected. He always had a flag flying on top of his cart. He led his people ahead and we followed him. When the herd was startled it was a dark solid moving mass. We, of those days, never could believe the buffalo would ever be killed off, for there were thousands and thousands… The riders of the chase all had guns, single barrel flint locks – some muzzle-loaders with caps… Powder horns and ball bags were slung on each shoulder. At close range the guns would kill the animal… When the kill was over, the women would go out to help bring the meat in, and then the slicing of meat began
