Crazy Horse Native American Dancers

What did you do this summer?   I wanted to share with my students and families this very special video I took on my summer road trip to the west coast.  This was taken in Black Hills National Park, South Dakota at the Crazy Horse Memorial near Mount Rushmore.  It is the world's largest mountain carving.  You can read more about who Crazy Horse is and why and how they are carving this mountain with this Native American.

These Native American dancers shared stories and several dances.  It was amazing!  It was a privilege to see these generations dancing together and honoring their culture.  The dancer with the red paint on his face is a relative of Crazy Horse.
