Chief Crazy Horse had a long and storied life, even though it was cut short by a US soldier's knife in the back at the relatively young age of 37. Crazy Horse died at Fort Robinson, Nebraska on September 6th, 1877. He was a hero to his people and to be imortalized for all time with this behemoth monument in the Black Hills of South Dakota. More information about his life and death can be found at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazy_Horse if you'd like to learn more.

Here's something about the monument itself: "'My fellow chiefs and I would like the white man to know the red man has great heroes, too.' These are the words Chief Henry Standing Bear wrote to sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski in 1939 urging him to visit the Black Hills and carve a mountain sculpture honoring American Indians. Fifty-five years after Ziolkowski began carving Crazy Horse Memorial, his family continues the dream and work progresses on the world's largest mountain sculpture. When finished, Crazy Horse will stand 641 feet long and 563 feet high."
