Navajo Code Talkers

Apr 9 - Jun 30, 2018

For a limited time only at the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum.

Growing up, young Navajo were told not to speak their language. But as young Marines during World War II, men like Samuel Tsosie Sr. found their words were their mightiest weapons.

The Marine Corps recruited Navajo to Camp Elliott (now part of MCAS-Miramar) to develop a code using the Navajo language for combat communications. The Navajo were deployed to the Pacific to use their native language to change the course of critical battles including Iwo Jim. The Navajo code is the only spoken military code that was never deciphered.  The code remained classified until 1968.

The Mike Tsosie Family has generously loaned for display Navajo Code Talker Samuel Tsosie Sr.’s artifacts from his time on the front lines in the Pacific during World War II.

GUEST LECTURE - BHAVNA MEHTA

Jul 16, 2018

Join us for a special guest lecture with our summer exhibition artist, Bhavna Mehta.

The narrative arc of Leela spans wide - across oil and paper, East and West, old and contemporary. Bhavna Mehta will talk about some of the ideas that went into the thinking and making of Leela.

Bhavna Mehta works with paper – cutting and embroidering it to tell stories that combine figurative imagery with botanical motifs, text and shadows. Using paper as skin and thread to connect and mend, using cutting and sewing to talk about exposing and hiding, she makes work about relating and remembering.
