The Crazy Horse Memorial is currently under construction and will be a mountain monument located in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The memorial is being sculpted by Korczak Ziolkowski. The land on which the monument will stand is considered sacred by many of the Native American tribes in the area.

Currently at the location of the memorial there is a museum containing such exhibits as Indian Museum of North America, Tribal Flag Collection, Robert Big Elk, Native American Educational and Cultural Center, Standing Soldier & Keith Exhibit and Dancey Collection.

When visiting the Crazy Horse Memorial, you will have an opportunity to see history in the making through the progression of the sculpture. There are activities and events happening year round.
