North American Indians- Crazy Horse Memorial

The Memorial’s mission is to honor the culture, tradition and living heritage of North American Indians. Crazy Horse Memorial was officially started in June 3, 1984 by Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski and Lakota Chief Henry Standing Bear.


Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation demonstrates its ongoing commitment to this promise by following these objectives: 
- Continuing the progress on the world’s largest mountain sculpture, carving a memorial to the spirit of legendary Lakota leader Crazy Horse and his culture
-  Providing educational and cultural programming to encourage harmony and reconciliation among all people and nations 
- Acting as a repository for Native American artifacts, arts and crafts through the Indian Museum of North America and the Native American Educational & Cultural Center
- By establishing and operating the Indian University of North America, and when practical, a medical training center for American Indians

It was interesting to visit Museum and Memorial as I'd found many special things and the knowledge that i never heard and seen before, the history of Native American,  their lifestyle and the special art works from them. It was excited to find out their story. I hope to visit again to see the sculpture after 20 years.
