Crazy Horse Memorial

Located between Custer and Hill City on Hwy 16/385, Crazy Horse Memorial® is the world’s largest Mountain Carving in progress. Lakota Chief Henry Standing Bear and sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski set out to create a Monument as a tribute to all North American Indians; after some discussion, Lakota warrior Crazy Horse was chosen by the Elders to represent the history and values of their Nation. Crazy Horse Memorial® has progressed through a great many changes since the June 3, 1948 dedication as a one-of-a-kind educational and humanitarian project.

Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation began with a mission to protect and preserve the culture, tradition, and living heritage if the North American Indians. The Foundation continues to demonstrate 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; providing educational and cultural programming to encourage harmony and reconciliation among all peoples 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 AND CULTURAL CENTER®; and establishing and operating THE INDIAN UNIVERSITY OF NORTH AMERICA®.”
