Native American Code Talkers: A Lasting Legacy

May 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+0

Free

During World War I and World War II, American Indians made a unique contribution to the U.S. Armed Forces by using their tribal languages in secret battle communications.

Watch author and anthropologist/historian William C. Meadows of Missouri State University revealing how these Native American “code talkers” played a key role in important battles and campaigns—and helped save many American and allied lives. Following Meadows’s talk, Alexandra Harris, National Museum of the American Indian senior editor and co-author of “Why We Serve: Native Americans in the United States Armed Forces,” will host a question-and-answer session with attendees.
