Remembering the Navajo Code Talkers
Of the more than 400 code talkers that served through World War II, less than 60 are still alive. A combination of many forms of Native American language and tribes were used to create a form of unbreakable communications during the war. Code talkers came from many tribes such as the Cherokee, Lakota, Meskwaki, and Comanche. The original code talking program was pioneered by Choctaw Indians serving in the United States Army during World War I.
