The Crazy Horse Information Station broadcasts on 1610 kHz AM 24 hours a day at the foot of the mountain, beckoning travelers into the Visitors' Center and the Indian Museum of North America.
The radio station also provides dynamite-blast schedules associated with mountain sculpting, notice of public events scheduled at the facilities and details on how to become involved in supporting this "monumental" volunteer effort.

Crazy Horse Monument in South Dakota August 2003
People might think they have seen all there is to see of the Crazy Horse Monument, when they drive past the large mountain carving in the Black Hills of South Dakota (near Mount Rushmore). But there is more to see and know than can be revealed in stone alone. 

Crazy Horse Monument broadcasts its story via an Information Station, inviting people into the history of the carving, i.e., the blood, sweat and tears of the past 50 years of work on the mountain carving and the Native American experience that inspired it.

That story, in essence, is what this interpretive Information Station tells motorists, as they approach the colossal work of art. Unless visitors hear the story and learn how the carving was crafted through drilling and dynamite, they cannot truly understand its significance. Until the Native American culture is shared; until the artist's background is conveyed; until the vision of the finished work is revealed, travelers cannot fully appreciate all that the carving represents. 

Crazy Horse Monument is a nonprofit, educational and cultural project, open year round.
