Code Talkers museum may be coming to Gallup

A museum to honor the Navajo Code Talkers may be coming to Gallup, New Mexico.

The city and the Southwest Indian Foundation received a $90,000 grant from the state and are putting $90,000 of their own money into finding an architect for the museum. Requests for proposals will go out next month.

The museum will be housed in the building of the Gallup Cultural Center.
