The Navajo Code Talkers

Jul 20 - ongoing

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. Approximately 400 Navajo recruited by the Marines learned the code.  The Navajo were deployed to the Pacific to use their native language to change the course of critical battles including Iwo Jima.

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.
