Transcript of Code Talker

By Joseph Bruchac
Code Talker
Code Talker takes place during the time of WWII, one of the bloodiest wars ever. It takes place in America, Hawiai and Japan. After Japan attacked the U.S., the military needed a secure means of communication for the war in the Pacific. They turned to Native Americans and their language for coded messages.
Time and Place
Main character
The major challenge for Ned Beggey was that he had to land on islands such as Iwo Jima, in the wide open, getting shot at by people that he could not even see. Once on land, he had to get to a relatively secure position from which he could send and receive the codes. His fellow marines depended on him to do his job correctly while being under attack.
