Bridging the Military-Civilian Divide

October 28,2014

Choctaw Code Talkers

In 1918, not yet citizens of the United States, Choctaw members of the American Expeditionary Forces were asked to use their Native language as a powerful tool against the German Forces in World War I — setting a precedent for code talking as an effective military weapon and establishing them as America’s original code talkers.

Choctaw Code Talkers will transport viewers back to World War I for an intimate and engaging look into the lives of these brave men, their families, their dreams and their patriotism to a country who would remember them as heroes, but not until after their death.
