I think the author wanted to bring to light the enormous contribution that Native Americans brought to the war effort. Code Talker is a historical fiction novel first published in 2005. It follows the story of a young Navajo boy, Kii Yazhi a.k.a. Ned Begay who is sent to a church school and bullied for his cultural background. During World War II, he is recruited to work for the U.S. military to decifer coded messages sent between American troops.
