HP Outing: Armed with Our Language, We Went to War: The Navajo Code Talkers

HSGP Humanities Project Outing:

 - presents -

Armed with Our Language, We Went to War: The Navajo Code Talkers, with Laura Tohe

invites audiences to learn about a small group of Navajo men from the Navajo homeland who enlisted in the Marines and devised a code using the Diné (Navajo) language to pass secret information without the enemy ever deciphering or breaking the code. For years a cloak of secrecy hung over the service these Code Talkers gave to the U.S. government and country. Over 40 years later, the code was declassified and the Code Talkers were recognized and honored for their military contributions to the war effort by Presidents Reagan and Bush, and the Navajo Nation.

    I lived on the Navajo Reservation for 10 years and this should be a very interesting talk. I live near Lindsey and Baseline if anyone wants to car pool with me.
