Memorial Day Weekend kicks off the summer festivities at the Memorial. New displays have been created in the INDIAN MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA® and NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL & CULTURAL CENTER®. The Memorial is especially proud of the American Bison display, located in the NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL & CULTURAL CENTER®. The exhibit includes educational hands-on displays. The story begins with the history of the bison in North American from its prehistoric beginnings to its near extinction, the exploits of western figures who helped save the remaining bison at the end of the 1800’s, to the cultural significance of the buffalo to tribes across the country.
Visitors to the Crazy Horse Memorial facilities will also enjoy Native American Dance performances during the day (weather permitting), every day through October 1, 2017. Guests can visit with the artists working on and selling their works. A visitor favorite, the nightly Laser Light Show starts this weekend at dark. See the Mountain drenched in a spectacular laser lights with wonderful narration and animation.
