Vacation Learning: Summer road trip 2017 #7

Our next stop was at Crazy Horse Memorial. Above, our Little Guy is dressing up in the hands-on children's learning area.  The kids got to see artifacts, play drums, learned about the tribes' flags, and see Native American artists create jewelry.

The memorial is still in the construction stage.  So far you can see the face, and one arm. Nevertheless, it is huge! To put it in perspective, all four heads from Mt. Rushmore would fit in Crazy Horse's head!

A Lakota family made a presentation about their beliefs, their music, their clothing, and other aspects of their culture.  We learned from the stories, and even participated in a dance at the end of their performance.
