Choctaw Nation soldiers served as Code Talkers in world wars

Soldiers from the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma used their language to transmit unbreakable codes during World War I and World War II.
During WWI, 19 tribal members served in the Choctaw Telephone Squad. Their success was replicated in WWII, when other Native languages were used.

Tushkahoma!
