During WWII codetalkers were introduced to improve communication and decrease the chance of messages being decoded by other forces, these codetalkers communicated in the languages of native Americans. There was approximately 400 – 500 native Americans employed in the force purely to code messages using their native language. There was 2 types of code used during WWII, type 1 was developed using the languages of the Comanche, Hopi, Meskwaki and Navajo people. Whereas, type 2 was informal and directly translated from English into the native language. This is example of coding that is interesting and can be related to another lesson within history and/or rights.
