Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation
This month, Crazy Horse Memorial found its own unique way to pay homage to those serving in essential and frontline jobs. It has produced a series of laser images projected onto the mountain carving titled “Honoring the World’s Workers.”
The rotating images appear each night, ranging from first responders to healthcare workers. All images are shared courtesy of Crazy Horse Memorial.

The Memorial announced last week that it is officially reopening to the public next Monday, May 18, with restrictions in place to protect the health of staff and guests; these include physical distancing, sanitizing all hard surfaces, heightened frequency of cleaning, practicing good hygiene, and other necessary protocols. Staff members who must manage the new safety protocols are receiving appropriate training, and upper-level university students serving as interns must adhere to the new protocols as well.
In addition, the Laughing Water Restaurant, Snack Shop, Gift Shop, and Bus to Base services also will be available to guests starting May 18, with proper safety, cleaning, and social distancing measures implemented. Korczak’s Heritage Inc. provides these services, with royalties paid to the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation.
