The Future of Crazy Horse Memorial
In 1979, in collaboration with painter Eugene Christopherson, Korczak put on canvas his vision of the future of Crazy Horse Memorial.
In this concept, the 563-foot-high Mountain Carving will dominate the horizon. A poem written by Korczak will be carved on the Mountain in letters three feet tall and the multi-storied, 350-foot diameter, hogan-style INDIAN MUSEUM OF NORTH AMERICA® will be located closer to the Mountain.The INDIAN UNIVERSITY OF NORTH AMERICA® and Medical Training Center, with its circular dormitories, could rise on either side of the Avenue of the Chiefs. The avenue may be lined with sculptural portraits of famous Native Americans. Visitors may be able to drive around the spring-fed lake to the other side of the colossal Crazy Horse sculpture in the round. The recreational facilities reflect Korczak’s great love of sports and his desire to encourage athletic activity.
Today, the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation Board of Directors and leadership continue to develop an evolving master plan for all components of Crazy Horse Memorial's mission and vision and look forward to unveiling an updated visual plan...."to protect and preserve the culture, tradition and living heritage of the North American Indians. The Foundation demonstrates its commitment to this endeavor by following these objectives:
