The Monuments and Memorials
1. It's a family affair. Korczak Ziolkowski started this immense project with his wife, Ruth. Several of their sons worked on the mountain with their dad. Several of their daughters work on the funding, museum, and visitor's center. Some of their grandsons are continuing the work on the mountain.
2. From the museum and cultural center to the overlooks and orientation video, everything is nicely put-together. Some displays feature Korczak's other works. Many displays feature Native American art and artifacts.
3. The whole concept is a wonderful tribute to Native Americans, their beliefs, and their trials.
