Indian Memorial at The Little Big Horn Battlefield

 

During my July 2008 vacation to The Little Big Horn Battlefield I also visited the Indian Memorial. The Indian Memorial is across from the US 7th Cavalry Monument, yet out of sight. You must walk up a hill and toward what appears to be a mound until you get closer and see inside. The interior is circular and has wall mounted displays about the Indian involvement at the Battle of The Little Big Horn. The Indian Monument was authorized in 1991 and the battlefield renamed from Custer Battlefield by President George Bush also in 1991.

Viewing the wire sculpture against the Montana sky is quite moving.
