Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse
Today was spent taking in as much as possible. Absolutely overwhelming and surreal taking in not only the monuments but the beauty of South Dakota.
"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 come back to the Black Hills and carve a mountain sculpture honoring American Indians."
"educational and cultural programming to encourage harmony and reconciliation among all people and nations"
Meanwhile, the day is still young and we have more to take in of our South Dakota adventure.
