How Native Americans Were Crucial To Defeat The Nazis And Japan In WWII
This is Chester Nez, the last of the original Navajo 29, being honoured at an April 4 ceremony. If it weren’t for him and the other 28 Native Americans who created the secret code language used in the Pacific theatre during World War II, America would have probably never won the war against Japan.

In Redskins Golf Tournament, It Was the Navajo Who Got Played
On Friday, many in Indian country were horrified to learn that the celebrity golf tournament put on by KTNN, the Navajo Nation’s radio station, had cut a sponsorship deal with the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation. Among those taken by surprise were the National Indian Gaming Association, a sponsor of the event, and the Notah Begay III Foundation, which had donated items to the silent auction — both organizations withdrew their support and demanded their names be taken off the tournament’s program.
