Summary
Navajo soldiers in World War II used their unwritten Native American tongue as an unbreakable code language. Ironically the U.S. military used the Native American language as a potent instrument of war. Successive generations of young Navajo men who fought in the elite division of the U.S. Marine Corps, relate their stories in this film. Reveals how their strong Navajo cultural identity and spiritual references correlated with traditional Marine Corps values and a passionate patriotism
