Amazing Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation in the Black Hills of South Dakota ~ So Much Inspiration ~ Christine


Crazy Horse hero to the Lakota and many of the Native Americans in the U.S.

First blast was June 3, 1948. The sculpture was begun by Korczak Ziolkowski (1908-1982) upon the request of Lakota Chief Henry Standing Bear. This memorial and foundation is so much more than a sculpture. The foundation and sculpture are continued by Korczak’s wife who passed in 2014 and now his ten children.

This area is the home of Indian University of North America which opened in 2010, with 130 students from 16 states and 25 tribes. And when practical, a medical training center for American Indians.

The mission of Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation is to protect and preserve the culture, tradition and living heritage of the North American Indians.


Above what the memorial will look like when it is finished and a closer view of the work in progress.

When asked where are lands now, Crazy Horse replied “My lands are where my dead lie buried. Crazy Horse died when he was stabbed in the back by a soldier when he’d come to a fort under truce.

Red Cloud, Lakota, 1891, They made us many promises, more than I can remember–They never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and they took it.

Dakota’s Bride, published by Kensington in 1998, was set in Lakota Territory.

When Emma St. John received her brother’s letter imploring her to escape her stepfather’s vengeful scheme and to trust Dakota Barringer with her life, she was willing to chance it. But the handsome, brooding riverboat owner Emma found in Natchez a danger of another kind. For Emma soon found herself surrendering to an unrelenting desire.

Raised by the Sioux when his parents were killed, Dakota had been betrayed once before by a white woman. He wasn’t about to trust another, especially one claiming that her stepfather, a powerful U.S. senator, had framed her as a murderess. But he couldn’t let Emma’s intoxicating effect on him. Now Dakota would risk his very life to protect the innocent beauty who had seduced him with her tender love.
