Plaque dedicated to World War ll Hopi code talkers

Flagstaff, Arizona (AP) 11-09

A special dedication Nov. 11 for the eight Hopi Code Talkers who served in World War II.

A bronze plaque commemorating the code talkers was dedicated during a Veterans Day observance at the Hopi Veterans Memorial Center in Kykotsmovi.

The plaque, says in part, the Hopi Tribe pays tribute and recognition to the remarkable achievements of the eight Hopi Code Talkers whose own language confounded the Japanese and contributed to the liberation of the South Pacific islands.

The last surviving Hopi Code Talker, Travis Yaiva, has been invited to attend the ceremony.
