 Mount Rushmore is a sculpture carved out of granite featuring the likeness of four American presidents, in the region of the Black Hills. It was created by Gutzon Borglum and continued by his son Lincoln Borglum. Originally known by the Lakota Sioux as 'Six Grandfathers' it was renamed after New York Lawyer Charles E Rushmore.

It is a controversial monument for Native American people because the United States forcibly took back the land from the Lakota, despite originally promising them the Black Hills in perpetuity.
