Natives - Oratory, Quotes, Insights, or Achievements

The young Navajo men

the proud grandsons of

brave warriors past, leave

home and family to

follow in the footsteps

of their ancestors to

become a different kind

of warrior!


Never did they suspect

how valuable a chosen

few would become in

defeating the enemies

of freedom by using

their native language.


Highly trained to send

coded messages in their

native tongue to alert

our military yet confusing

the enemy!


This code would earn

these chosen few a name

honored and respected today.

They became known as

THE CODE TALKERS!


They made their Indian Nation

proud and the ancient

warrior's smile with approval!

As these remaining few

are honored still today,

Our grateful nation knows them as

THE CODE TALKERS!

This is a beautiful tribute. I actually had the honor to meet Joe Morris. He is in his late 80's now. He was one of the original Navajo Code talkers. He comes to the Pow Wow here in California and him and his wife Charlotte have a booth where he sells his video's and others. He is a kind and gentle person. I love to hear his stories. His wife and him are 2 of the nicest people I have ever met. Wado for posting this wonderful tribute Beth!
