Summary:
In the 19th century, the United States Government forced the peaceful and spiritual Navajo nation off their homeland and onto a small reservation. Navajo children were forcibly enrolled in government schools, where policy focused on the elimination of Navajo customs, culture, and language. But after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, their language became the United States' secret weapon. For decades they were sworn to secrecy in case their services were needed again. Now, their story is told through archival wartime footage and eloquent interviews with the Code Talkers.
