NAVAJO CODE TAL KERS

HEADPHONES 544605. I am grateful for my heritage

and the rich history of the Navajo people. I wanted to express my love and respect for the Navajo Code Talkers for their influential and unique role in helping “Our Mother” win WWII.

THE UNBREAKABLE CODE The Code was conceived by the first Navajo Code Talkers formed in1942, also referred to as the “original 29�. It was designed using the Navajo language to represent military terms or resemble things with which they were associated. For example, the Navajo word for tortoise, "chay-da-gahi," meant tank.

STORY


Gold represents the Congressional Gold Medal award given to honor the Navajo Code Talkers in 2001.

The “original 29,” Navajo Code Talkers.

“The Navajo Language Was Used To Defeat The Enemy.”

A Navajo tradition in rug making is to leave one string hanging loose from the corner of the rug, known as the “Spirit String”. This allows the rug-maker’s spirit to be released from the rug after it is complete. Navajo’s also believe that God is the only person who has the ability and right to ultimate perfection. The “Spirit String”, acknowledges God as the supreme creator of all things.


after we're all gone, there will be no one to tell the story."

“Our language was used to help win the war....
