Comanche Code of Honor

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown September 24th, 2013 Last Updated on: September 24th, 2013

Most of us have heard the story of the Navajo Code Talkers, as shown in the 2002 movie “Windtalkers”.  However a new exhibit at the Comanche National Museum and Cultural Center in Lawton, Oklahoma hopes to tell the story of the Comanche Code Talkers.  The exhibit will include an interactive video installation to show viewers what it was like to be on Utah Beach during World War II.  “Comanche Code of Honor” opens just in time for the Comanche Nation Fair on September 26, 2013 and will run through August 2014.

it’s nice to see commache code talkers get credit. but even tho i’m not of the sac and fox tribe i was born and raised in iowa. they too had code talkers. in fact one died last yr. i think it’s nice the tribes are calling attention to there contribution to the war. but i think it would be better if all tribes united and claimed credit as a whole, for all native americans who fought. we as a whole did what we did for our land, even tho we were and still are looked down up on.
