What Will Crazy Horse Look Like?
The Crazy Horse Memorial will eventually be 641 feet long and 563 feet high. Once completed, it will be the largest mountain carving in the world. The face of Crazy Horse will be eighty-seven feet high, and all details will be carved by hand. The entire monument will be made up of granite, which is known for its strength and beauty.
The Crazy Horse Memorial is also a place of education. The Indian University of North America is found on the grounds of the memorial and offers educational programs for students of all ages. The memorial also offers a museum, art galleries, and a cultural center. Visitors can take part in the Native American educational programs, view artifacts from the 1800s, and learn about the Lakota culture.
Visiting the Crazy Horse Memorial is a must for anyone visiting South Dakota. Seeing the progress of the monument is incredible and learning about the Lakota culture is a wonderful experience. Plus, it is a great way to support the education of Native American students and the preservation of their culture.
