Native American Code Talkers

The U.S. Army in France during WWI first used Native Americans as code talkers. Code talkers were again used in WWII by the U.S. Marine Corps in the Pacific and on a lesser scale by the Army in Europe and North Africa. The Comanche, Choctaw, and Navajo Tribes were used most frequently as code talkers, but members of other tribes such as Creek, Pawnee, Cherokee, Menomonee, Chippewa, and Hopi contributed. In each case they were speaking in their own language.
