Overview:

Dine (Navajo) code talkers transmit the coordinates of the enemy to the naval fleet for an attack. Because the enemy has no knowledge of their language, their communication is secret and cannot be decoded.  This chapter of history is not widely known. "Windtalkers," tells the story of how Navajo Indians used their language to create an unbreakable code that helped win World War II in the Pacific. This video can be used when describing the military strategies of World War II.
