Choctaw Code Talkers – Don’t Miss this Documentary!

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown November 10th, 2015 Last Updated on: November 10th, 2015

In honor of Veterans Day, Vision Maker Media is proud to bring you the Choctaw Code Talkers documentary for free!

Released in 2010, Choctaw Code Talkers is a follow-up to the award-winning documentary True Whispers: The Story of the Navajo Code Talkers, a PBS nationally broadcast documentary produced by Valerie Red-Horse, President, of Red-Horse Native Productions, Inc. with Gale Anne Hurd, CEO, of Valhalla Motion Pictures.

In 1918, not yet citizens of the United States, Choctaw members of the U.S. American Expeditionary Forces were asked to use their Native Language as a powerful tool against German Forces in World War 1., setting a precedent for code talking as an effective military weapon and establishing them as America's original Code Talkers.
