In-Person Film | Navajo Code Talkers 2 PM

August 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

It is one of the most intriguing and heroic stories in the history of the United States. In the 1940s, 29 young men from government-run Navajo reservations bravely heeded the call of a nation in need–a nation which once nearly wiped out their ancestors and the memory of their culture.
In this eye-opening documentary, renowned historians and several Navajo veterans relate how a mere handful of WWII marines transcended generations of persecution, relocation, and genocide to devise the only unbreakable code in modern military history.
True patriots, these code talkers gave the United States enormous statistical advantage over enemy powers and saved countless lives. Don’t miss this important opportunity to reflect on these extraordinary men.

Running time: 50 minutes.

This event is free, does not require a reservation, and will occur inside. Face coverings are optional.
