Welcome to Today’s Native!

Today’s Native is a resource from tribal members, Native American people, and friends in the Native community.

“I am honored to have served my country through my military service in both World War II and the Korean War. I volunteered to serve in an elite group known as the Navajo Code Talkers. We used our Navajo language to relay vital communications on the front lines of combat in the South Pacific to help America win the war. Since retiring from serving my country in military ser­vice, I have been blessed to serve God as a pastor in my community. It has been my joy to speak to the younger generation about my experiences. I have no regrets for having invested my life in communicating the most vital message ever needed—the message of the Word of God!”

–Roy Hawthorne, Navajo Code Talker

Honoring Those Who Served

Across the Navajo Nation, the heart language of the Dine’ People has endured. If the policies of our government had been successful, there would be no more Navajo speakers today. Many of the tribal elders tell of their experiences as children being shipped off to government boarding school where speaking in their native tongue was forbidden and often punished.

In spite of this, the Navajo language has not only endured, but was a key component in the winning of World War II.

I grew up greatly admiring all those who have served in the Armed Forces. I knew that many Native Americans (including my father and uncles) had served this country with distinct honor and fulfilled their call of duty.
