Three Montana Tribes are Honored for Their Service in WWI and WWII

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday, the Crow, Sioux and Cheyenne tribes from Montana, along with thirty other tribes, were honored by Congress for their service as code talkers during WWI and II.

During those wars, members of these American Indian tribes assisted our military on the battlefield by speaking with each other in their native tongues.

For an interesting side note, 96 year old Edmond Harjo, of the Seminole nation in Oklahoma, is one of the last surviving "code talkers" who was honored.
