Read All About It! New Interview, News Article – Sioux Code Talkers
I am so grateful for the latest new interview, news article about the Sioux Code Talkers. Most people who see my book, Sioux Code Talker of World War II, skid to a stop, and cry out, “I knew about the Navajo- I didn’t know there were other groups of code talkers!”
It has been such a pleasure being able to talk about my research and my great-uncle’s honorable service as a code talker in the latest interviews, news articles.

School Library Journal Review
Gr 7 Up—This well-documented title vividly brings to life the story of John Bear King and other Sioux code talkers during World War II. What makes this nonfiction text unique is the painstaking detail the author, the great-niece of King, took to research actual coded messages in military archives and transcribe them into the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota languages….The book is engaging from start to finish, with a well-written text that is enhanced by period photographs and reproductions of significant documents. VERDICT A valuable work for teens studying code talkers and American Indian contributions to the U.S. victory in the Pacific theater.—Naomi Caldwell, Alabama State University, Montgomery
