Peter MacDonald, Sr., Navajo Code Talker, to Speak at Notre Dame

Author: Megan Leis


Join Navajo Code Talker and Former Leader of the Navajo Nation, Peter MacDonald, Sr., for a talk about his experience serving in the South Pacific as a Navajo Code Talker and in North China with the Sixth Marine Division.

The Navajo Code is a unique World War II legacy. It was used in all Pacific battles to transmit top secret and confidential messages. The Navajo Code, commissioned by the United States Marine Corps, saved hundreds of thousands of lives and helped to shorten the war in the Pacific. It is the only military code in modern history to never be broken by the enemy.
