Crazy Horse

Robson and I walked in just in time to join the couple sitting in the back corner of the auditorium for the screening of Crazy Horse Memorial's history. It was mostly about Korczak Ziolkowski, the sculptor commissioned by chief Standing Bear to carve a memorial to the Sioux in their sacred Black Hills. The video was pretty cool, and even cooler that my 20 year old brother was into it. And also into exploring the museum afterwords. With low battery I had to be selfish with the pictures I took, so got none of the amazing weapons the Indian's used- I took mostly garments and settings...

and took a note to look up Woody Crumbo, whose prints covered an entire wall facing the huge windows that looked up to the monument. A little background on the Pottawatomie artist, 1912-1989.
