Question
Hello, I am an 8th grader doing a National History Day project about the Navajo Code Talkers of WWII. I was hoping that you could supply me with as much information about this topic as possible. mainly about the Code Talkers rights and the governments responsibilities concerning the Code Talkers. Thank You!

Answer
Hello,

The Navajo code talkers were quite useful during the war because their language was not understood by just about anyone in the world.  The enemy could understand them.  To learn more about the code talkers, you may find these sites helpful:
