Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills National Forest

Take a short look at the work of the world-famous sculptor and his family's work. They took on a mission to memorialize the Native Americans with a monument carved out of a mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota, not far from Mount Rushmore National Monument. The work continues without government funding or assistance, as the process began and pledged to continue after his death. Korczak Ziolkowski planned and began the project in 1948. When finished, this mountain of a project should be nearly 570 feet tall.
