About This Lesson

Navajo Times Lydia Chais' interviews Peter McDonnell, surviving Code Talker.

After the devastation of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese forces were confounded as more and more American soldiers landed on the shores of the Pacific. The Japanese had been able to break code after code of allied military information gaining the upper hand.  But now a mysterious new code had entered into the fray and had the Japanese perplexed, this code they could not break. It was created by Navajo Native Americans, who were facing much danger, as well as racism on a daily basis. Because of their valiant efforts, millions of lives were saved.
