Three Navajo Code Talkers and one Lakota Code Talker were recently honored at a pow-wow on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota.

Sam Tso, Samuel Billison, Alfred Peaches and Rosebud tribal member Charles White Pipe Sr. are among the hundreds of Code Talkers who helped the United States win World War II. Of the group, however, the Navajos are most famous even though Hopi, Comanche, Lakota and Ojibwe were among the languages used to confuse the Japanese during the war.

The four men were grand marshals of the 125th annual Rosebud Fair wacipi, which took place in August.
