The Navajo Code Talkers seem to get all the credit but warriors from other tribal nations also helped the United States with code efforts during World War II.

Charles Chibitty of the Comanche Tribe of Oklahoma was one of them. One of 16 Comanche Code Talkers, he is the last one living.

Other Code Talkers included members of Hopi, Choctaw, Oneida and Ojibwe tribes.
