About this event:
During World War II, the United States utilized Native Americans to create codes that the Germans and Japanese could not break. While the famous Navajo Code Talkers assisted in communication in the Pacific, Comanche Code Talkers were used for the European Theater of Operations. Fourteen of these code talkers landed on Utah Beach on June 6, 1944. Learn about their role on D-Day during this interactive session honoring the legacy of Native Americans in World War II.
