Mount Rushmore

Bromo Tengger Semeru Nationalpark

The Mount Rushmore is well known for the Mount Rushmore Memorial. The mountain in the Black Hills were sacred to the Sioux and other tribes and originally known as "The six Grandfathers". The mountain was renamed after Charles E. Rushmore, a prominent New York lawyer. The memorial, showing sculptures of the heads of four United States presidents: George Washington (1732–1799), Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826), Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919) and Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) was constructed between 1927 and 1941.

From the Indian perspective, the construction of the Mount Rushmore Memorial at this sacred place, which is also called the “Shrine of Democracy", was a symbol of the dominant culture’s arrogance, racism and spiritual insensitivity.
