Crazy Horse Memorial, in the Black Hills of South Dakota, is being sculpted in-the-round and is the world’s largest ongoing mountain carving. This massive memorial is meant to honor the culture, tradition and living heritage of all Native American tribes. Once completed, it will be 641 feet long by 563 feet high.

In 1948, sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski and Lakota Chief Henry Standing Bear started the mountain carving, just south of Mount Rushmore National Memorial. The face of Crazy Horse was dedicated during the Memorial's 50th anniversary on June 3, 1998, but Ziolkowski was not there to see it. He died in 1982, leaving his family to continue work on his great vision. Blasting is currently underway on the horse.

Crazy Horse Memorial also offers a welcome center, restaurant, gift shop and The Indian Museum of North America. Come experience South Dakota and Crazy Horse Memorial.
