World War II Navajo code talkers’ story and the effort to keep their legacy alive
Time taken: 3 minutes, 3 seconds
Young Navajo volunteers were recruited by the Marines during World War II for their unique language skills. There were 80 code talkers in each of the four squads. Crucial information was radioed in their native language during the thick island attacks, but it was indecipherable. Peter MacDonald, a 94-year-old former Navajo code talker, says it’s crucial to keep the remarkable story alive for the Navajo Nation and for the rest of us, despite the fact that the Navajo have only collected a fraction to build a museum honoring the brave soldiers.
