It's national navajo code talkers day on the 15th August.
The Navajo Code Talkers were quite literally game-changers in World War II. Instead of relying on easy-to-crack codes, the U.S government recruited the Navajo, an Indigenous people residing in the United States, who took a play straight out of Harry Potter’s book, talking in a language that baffled their enemies till their heads spun.
It was a fantastic hand-me-down the Navajo had - the unique language used in everyday life. The military saw the immense potential this language had to stump the dumbfounded Axis Powers. And it worked. No Polyjuice Potion needed - they were in deep cloak-and-dagger mode.
These men would spend quotidian days sending and receiving encrypted messages so that our soldiers could outfox the competitors. It was a humdrum routine only out of necessity, not because their days were in any way ordinary.
On National Navajo Code Talkers Day, we bring this underground espionage world to light, honoring the Navajo Code Talkers for helping our nation whisper secrets in broad daylight. So, next time you whisper a secret to your BFF, add a touch of Navajo spunk to it. Happy National Navajo Code Talkers Day!
