The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument is among National Park Service sites offering a number of fee-free days in 2017, the second of which will be February 20th, Presidents' Day.

For many years, the Native Americans were not recognized in their part of the Battle of Little Bighorn; particularly how "12 companies of the Seventh Cavalry were defeated by Lakota (Sioux), Cheyenne, and Arapaho warriors". In 1991, President George H.W Bush signed legislation to rename the General Custer Memorial to recognize the Native Americans who fought valiantly at Little Bighorn to protect their homeland and their traditional ways of life.
