Aug 12, 2013

They call it a dream on purpose, it will never ever get finished. They have worked for decades to get just the face done.

It is evident that the family Not of Indian Decent that is working on this has realized it will never get done and why put most of the money into it when we can all work here for a 6 figure plus income each and build a really nice gift shop etc. There are only about 10 people that are supposedly working on the project. There is almost zero progress over a couple decades, the artist has passed away and they are moving just enough rock The easy part to make you think this will be complete. The movie would be great if it honored Crazy Horse, instead it is about the family and dream If I were a ancestor of Crazy Horse I would insist they stop.

They need to be investigated immediately and stopped from defacing the mountain. I would love to see the accounting of this place or watch how much cash at the entrance is pocketed by the family.

Think how easy it is to pocket that when there is nobody to account for what the family is doing Plus it is tax free either way. Do research before you go and plan on leaving very upset. They will say how much you can learn about the culture etc etc. Not true They have no timeline on finishing the project, they appear to not really being trying to honor a great warrior, but using his name to pocket cash.

Based on the progress over 66 years, I would say completion of just the rock Not the University, Lake, etc etc is about year We are sorry that you arrived too late to enjoy the optional guided bus tour to the base of the Mountain. As we get closer to closing for the day we may have only had one bus driver on staff. The closing staff should have offered a return pass for the next day and we will make sure to use this as a training opportunity for that team. The Crazy Horse Memorial is a dream for many reasons not one of them is because there is no intention of completing the Mountain Carving.

We are sorry that you did not see the vision and appreciate that you took the time to try. The mission given to us by Chief Henry Standing Bear a descendant of Crazy Horse and Korczak Ziolkowski has been to honor, protect and preserve the history, culture and living heritage of all North American Indians.

There is over Native American tribes across the nation to focus on one man and his tribal history would leave out tribes with rich history, cultures and identities.

Crazy Horse Monument

This stage will take approximately years to complete and is being carved by hand, since this is a very delicate area of the sculpture. The Mountain was created to be the centerpiece of the overall educational efforts, which is why we have worked on the Museum and University in tandem with the continued progress of the Mountain Carving. We truly appreciate your time and the opportunity to open this important discussion.

I loved Mount Rushmore but this memorial struck a cord for me more. The short movie on this memorial and the family who has sponsored this project is inspiring.

Fasting for two days, Crazy Horse had a vision of an unadorned horseman who directed him to present himself in the same way, with no more than one feather and never a war bonnet. He was also told to toss dust over his horse before entering battle and to place a stone behind his ear and directed to never take anything for himself.

He and Black Buffalo Woman spent one night together before No Water took back his wife, shooting Crazy Horse in the nose and breaking his jaw.

Somewhere along the Yellowstone River, Crazy Horse encountered Custer for the first time, coming upon a contingent of napping soldiers. The Sioux attempted to steal their horses but failed, and Crazy Horse retreated after a scuffle.

One week later, General Custer entered into battle at Little Big Horn after refusing the advice of his Native guides, who assured him he would lose the confrontation. Crazy Horse traveled to Big Butte to harass white miners in the Black Hills, while the Sioux faced continued hostilities from General Crook during a harsh winter that decimated the tribe. Miles tried to strike a deal with Crazy Horse, promising to help the Sioux and treat them fairly.

When Crazy Horse sent emissaries to discuss the deal, soldiers shot and killed several and Crazy Horse fled. Incapacitated by the winter, Crazy Horse negotiated with Lieutenant Philo Clark, who offered the starving Sioux their own reservation in exchange their surrender.
