Your opinion is shared by a number of Lakota activists and spokesmen...the monument is quite controversial within the Native America community ..however, it was a Lakota Chief, Henry Standing Bear, who first approached Ziolkowski about the project...

It would have been more of an honor to Crazy Horse to have left the mountain in its natural state. In my Opinion.

This is the yet-unfinished statue of the great Lakota Chief, Crazy Horse, who, along with Chief Sitting Bull, taught General George Armstrong Custer a lesson in cavalry tactics at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in June, 1876, in what is now Eastern Montana. The work was started in the 1940's by a sculptor named Korczak Ziolkowski, who had worked on Mt. Rushmore with Gutzon Borglum. Ziolkowski died in 1982, but the work is being carried forward by a foundation. To give some idea of scale, the presidents' faces on Mt.Rushmore are each about 60 feet tall. The face of Crazy Horse is almost 90 feet tall. If anybody ever had it coming, it was George Custer. His last words are reputed to have been "At least we won't have to go back through South Dakota."
