Crazy Horse Memorial Apr 27, 2008
I had the chance to visit the Black Hills in South Dakota this past April. I read about it in school and I had always wanted to see it in person. It is absolutely beautiful. They have come a long way with so much work that still needs to be done. Ruth Ziolkowski, wife of Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski was there for the Indian Conference. I got to take some pictures of her. This was a rare opportunity to see her. She does not do to many interviews anymore because of her age.

Crazy Horse from the parking lot Dec 08, 2008
I was disappointed to be honest, I just stayed in the parking lot. It wasn''t finished and it cost too much to get in. They had a museum or something though so it might be worth it if you are into the history, etc.

Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski and Lakota Chief Henry Standing Bear officially began this project in 1948 to honor the culture, tradition and living heritage of North American Indians. But unlike the nearby Mount Rushmore the sculptor didn't want government involvement in this project. He believed in initiative and private enterprise. After his death in 1982 his family has continued the work. Presently seven of his ten children are working on the project. Only 17 miles away from Mount Rushmore, this is a totally different site to visit. The difference is evident from the moment you enter, the Crazyhorse Memorial is friendly and welcoming and the other, government run.
