The Navajo Code Talker GI Joe hit stores in the Navajo Nation this past weekend. A special autograph signing with some of the Code Talker at the Wal-Mart in Gallup, NM, kicked off the sale of the historic action figures on Saturday, May 20.

The Navajo Code Talkers were a special unit who created an unbreakable code during World War II using the Dine language.

Other Native American soldiers also created codes based on native languages, including Commanche and Choctaw.
