Storyboard Text

  • Kii Yazhi was a proud Navajo boy.
  • He was sent to a mission school to learn the way of the white man and forget his Navajo language.
  • His name was changed to Ned Begay and his hair cut short.
  • You are smart. We will teach you Navajo code to help during the war. It must be kept secret.
  • Ned was proud to be a marine and worked hard communicating with code and saving lives in the Pacific during WWII.
  • He returned home safe. He was strong and brave. However, the Navajo code was still a secret and no one could know how smart and brave the Navajo Marines were.
  • Finally, 25 years later, the government released the files of the Navajo code talkers. Ned was able to tell his grandchildren his story. The Navajo code talkers received a medal.
