Kevin Costner has spent $7.5 million (GBP4.16 million) creating a native American cultural centre near Deadwood, South Dakota.

The TATANKA: STORY OF THE BISON complex features an impressive sculpture of a cowboy running with the buffalo - inspired by a scene in Costner's DANCES WITH WOLVES.

The actor is thrilled with his investment, stating, "This will be here long after I'm gone."
