Remember American Indian Heritage Month with this PBS program that explores the personal and heartfelt story of the Navajo Code Talkers. Young Navajo men were recruited from government boarding schools to serve in the U.S. Marines during World War II. From 1942-1945, they devised an unbreakable code in their 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 the Navajo reservation with original music, graphic World War II footage, archival photographs, historical re-enactments, and interview with Navajo historians and leaders of the Navajo Nation.
