Code Talker Book Discussion with The 821 Project

The 821 Project’s book discussions expose the local community to social justice and multicultural perspectives through literature.

The discussion is on the themes and topics from "Code Talker: The First and Only Memoir By One Of The Original Navajo Code Talkers of WWII." This book chronicles Chester Nez's experiences during World War II as a "code talker" and his experiences growing up on the Checkerboard Area of the Navajo reservation. 

The book discussion is open to both those who have and have not read this book. The book has been selected to honor the United Nations International Day of The World's Indigenous Peoples, which is on August 9th.
