Navajo Code Talkers in WWII

“The life stories of nine Navajo Code Talkers were featured in a ceremony at Window Rock, Ariz., as part of Navajo Code Talkers Day on Friday, August 14, 2020. The films were created by students of Winona State University and DinĂ© College, Tsaile, Ariz., the tribal college of the Navajo Nation. The films were created under the Navajo Oral History project, an academic collaboration of the two education institutions, which ran from 2009-2015. During six years of active field work, students in the Navajo Oral History project made 27 documentary films about Navajo elders, including nine films about Navajo Code Talkers.” Read full story here and watch the video oral histories here.
