Event Details

During World War II, the Navajo language was known to only 30 non-native speakers. Navajo students were recruited from government-run boarding schools, and trained as “code-talkers.” These individuals created an unbreakable spoken code, and contributed to the Allied victory, but at what personal cost?

Join us for a film screening and discussion as we celebrate Native American Heritage Month.
