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

During WWII, a select group of young Navajo men devised a secret code using their language. The code was never broken. A cloak of secrecy hung over the Code Talkers' service until the code was declassified in 1968; the men were finally honored for their military contributions in 1982. In this presentation from November 10, 2015, Arizona State University Professor Laura Tohe, a native speaker of Navajo and daughter of a Code Talker, discussed the Code Talkers’ cultural background, how the code was devised and used, and how Navajo spiritual beliefs were used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
