The mission of Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation is to protect and preserve the culture, tradition and living heritage of the North American Indians. The Foundation demonstrates its commitment to this endeavor by continuing the progress on the world's largest sculptural undertaking by carving a memorial of Lakota leader Crazy Horse; by providing educational and cultural programming; by acting as a repository for American Indian artifacts, arts and crafts through the INDIAN MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA(R) and the NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL & CULTURAL CENTER(R); and by establishing and operating the INDIAN UNIVERSITY OF NORTH AMERICA(R) and, when practical, a medical training center for American Indians.

The most impressive part of the Crazy Horse Memorial was learning the history behind the memorial. The Native Americans in this area did not want their contribution to American History to be overshadowed by Mount Rushmore, and so they commissioned sculptor Ziilkowski to carve Crazy...More

The film on how the monument was started is real interesting and the though that one family is leading the charge on this huge. The artifacts and from the tribes are interesting. If you're in the area it is worth the stop.

I've seen others' comments that there isn't much to see here but the sheer magnitude of this project is worth a look. The fact that this place has refused government money and depends on private donations makes it even more of a marvel. More sophisticated...More

$11/person to get in the park. $4/person to ride the bus. We spent an hour, but you could spend a lot more time.
