The Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation is hosting Honoring the Dreamers, a special event, on Tuesday, September 6, 2023 at the Crazy Memorial at Custer, South Dakota that will feature hoop dancing and an evening drone show. 

The event  is in celebration of Korczak Ziolkowski’s birthday and in remembrance of Crazy Horse’s death. The Crazy Horse Memorial was the dream of Polish American sculptor Korczak Ziółkowski, who was born on September 6, 1908. 

A special cultural performance by Tony Duncan and family at 4:30 pm on the Crazy Horse Memorial veranda. The Duncan Family are World Champion Hoop Dancers from the Mesa, Arizona area. Tony Duncan is a five-time World Champion Hoop dancer and performing artist. The 2013 Native American Music Awards Artist of the Year, Tony Duncan has also toured with international pop star, Nelly Furtado.  As a child, he learned hoop dancing from his father, and has since passed the tradition on to his children.

Native American veterans will be honored at 8:00 pm on the veranda.

At 8:30pm, 150 drones will take to the sky in a spectacular entertaining performance honoring the Dreamers and all Native Americans.  Fantasy Drone Shows, creators of the visual program and drone operators, have flown drone light shows all over the country including Las Vegas, Miami, and Los Angeles. They have a one of a kind show planned for their performance.
