Uncover WW2’s Navajo Code Talkers

The exhibit traces the history of the Navajo Code Talkers and is a tribute to the U.S. Marine Corps communications specialists


Learn how Navajos of the American Southwest used their unwritten language to transmit secret tactical messages during World War II at the Arizona State Museum, University of Arizona Campus.. A new, temporary exhibit honoring the famed Navajo Code Talkers runs July 17-August 15.

The exhibit, “Our Fathers, Our Grandfathers, Our Heroes,” traces the history of the Navajo Code Talkers and is a tribute to the U.S. Marine Corps communications specialists who developed the complex code that helped thwart America’s former enemies. Included are more than 30 photographs, a 1940s-era map of the Navajo Reservation, the now-declassified Navajo Code, and other memorabilia.

Arizona State Museum is open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
