Congressional Gold Medal ceremony to honor code talkers
33 tribes will be recognized as part of the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 20, for the Native American code talkers.
“It’s a big honor, especially for the Lakota,” Tribal President Bryan Brewer said. “The Navajo, they’re real famous for their code talkers, but our story has always been kind of quiet. This is a once-in-a-lifetime deal for the families.”
