They made an incredible contribution in WW2, but I wonder how many code talkers are still alive? They must all be well past 90 at this point.

The last one died in 2010. This is honoring the tribes they came from.

And I'm not sure who is doing the honoring? The White Wolf Pack I think? But I can't figure out who they are.

@RavenCT there are some still alive.. there is one in my community alive.. he is old.

Edit My Bad! The last Lakota Code Talker died in 2010!
I guess I need to eat more carrots!
There are surviving Code Talkers.


@RavenCT you saw right. but the article didn't do enough research lol

@AmmaRE007 Right other tribe's Code talkers survive!
I remember the president insulting them during a presentation? How could I forget!


I have taught on two reservations that were the sorce of many code talkers; Hopi and Navajo (Dine' ). I have honored and recognized codetalkers in many circumstances over the last twenty years. They helped win the War in the Pacific.
