Korczak Ziolkowski began work on Crazy Horse Memorial in 1948. Once complete, this tribute to the Lakota leader will be the largest mountain carving in the world. The on-site Indian Museum of North American and the Native American Educational & Cultural Center also provide educational and cultural programming.
Indian Museum of North America
In a space that incorporates Korczak's love of wood and natural lighting, the museum's collection reflects the histories and cultures of the American Indian people.
Spectacular Night Blasts
Twice a year, these ceremonial detonations light up the mountain with incredible fireballs and specially designed pyrotechnics.
