True Whispers: The Story of the Navajo Code Talkers is the personal and heartfelt story of the Navajo Code Talkers. Young Navajo men wererecruited from government boarding schools to serve in the U.S. Marines during World War II. From 1942-1945, they devised an unbreakable code intheir native language and transmitted vital messages to military forces in the Pacific.
True Whispers is a moving testament to these forgotten heroes and their wartime contributions. The film combines breathtaking images of theNavajo reservation with original music, graphic World War II footage, archival photographs, historical re-enactments, and interviews with Navajo historians and leaders of the Navajo Nation.
