                               RESOLUTION


 
 To recognize 50 years of efforts with respect to the creation of the 
 Crazy Horse Memorial, honoring the great Oglala Sioux leader, Tasunke 
Witko, popularly known as ``Crazy Horse'', and to express the Sense of 
          the Senate with respect to the Crazy Horse Memorial.

Whereas Tasunke Witko, popularly known as ``Crazy Horse'', was one of the 
        greatest Native American warriors and spiritual leaders of the United 
        States;
Whereas Crazy Horse fought to defend the rights and lives of the Sioux Indians 
        and all Native Americans;
Whereas Crazy Horse is best known for leading a force of Cheyenne and Oglala 
        Sioux warriors to victory over George Armstrong Custer in the Battle of 
        Little Big Horn;
Whereas in 1940, several Sioux Indian chiefs invited the late sculptor, Korczak 
        Ziolkowski, to create a memorial to their great leader, Crazy Horse, by 
        carving a tribute to Crazy Horse into the Black Hills in South Dakota on 
        a mountain popularly known as ``Thunderhead Mountain'';
Whereas on June 3, 1948, the Crazy Horse Memorial was dedicated, which is the 
        date on which the first blast was made to shape the memorial on 
        Thunderhead Mountain;
Whereas at the time of that dedication, Korczak Ziolkowski vowed that the Crazy 
        Horse Memorial would be a nonprofit educational and cultural project 
        that would be financed solely through private, nongovernmental sources;
Whereas Korczak Ziolkowski dedicated his life to the creation of the Crazy Horse 
        Memorial and continued that work through his death on October 20, 1982; 
        and
Whereas once complete, the Crazy Horse Memorial, with a height of 563 feet and 
        length of 641 feet, will be the largest sculpture in the world: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved, That--
            (1) the Senate recognizes--
                    (A) that June 3, 1998, commemorates the 50th 
                anniversary of the blast on the mountain known as 
                Thunderhead Mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota 
                that constituted the first step made toward the 
                completion of the Crazy Horse Memorial;
                    (B) the admirable efforts of the late Korczak 
                Ziolkowski, the sculptor responsible for the design and 
                techniques involved in the creation of the Crazy Horse 
                Memorial; and
                    (C) that the creation of the Crazy Horse Memorial, 
                from its inception, has been accomplished through 
                private donations and without any Federal funding; and
            (2) it is the sense of the Senate that the Crazy Horse 
        Memorial will constitute a tribute to--
                    (A) Tasunke Witko, a great Oglala Sioux warrior and 
                spiritual leader; and
                    (B) all Native Americans.
