Code Talkers Museum

Is in the works! According to Navajo Times, Chevron Mining Co., donated 208 acres of land as a site for the museum. The code talkers are now in their 80s and 90s, and this is a GREAT idea! Come to think of it, I didn't see much of the code talkers at the WW2 musuem in New Orleans, but they didn't have much on the Pacific theater of war. Perhaps they will also add something more when they expand (they were planning on expanding with another building when I was there in 2005) for the war in the Pacific. HERE is the link to the Navajo Times story about the code talkers museum. Our church youth group is planning on returning to the reservation to go teach Vacation Bible School again, and hopefully I will be able to return with them.


  1. I am glad that the Navajo Nation will be able to tell their story. Navajos are a proud people, with a rich culture, sadly that is dying with the old ones.

    The Comanches also had "code talkers" as did several other Nations. The Navajos had the most "Code Talkers" at about 420. After everything the "Code Talkers" have been through, I am glad they are being recognized for their part in shaping American history.

  2. Diane:
    I saw the History Channel show on code talkers...marvelous look into a part of our history that (until then) was relatively ignored.
    Good to see something lasting coming of these brave people and the work they did for this nation.
