Honoring code talkers

In this Tuesday, June 22, 2010 photo, Francis Whitebird of the Sicangu Lakota Warriors leads people to the Committal Shelter during services for Lakota code talker Clarence Wolf Guts at the Black Hills National Cemetery outside Sturgis, S.D. Wolf Guts was the last living Lakota code talker. American Indians who sent coded messages to shield U.S. military communications from the enemy during World Wars I and II are being honored later in November 2013 at the nation's capital. Several South Dakota and North Dakota tribes are among 33 tribes to be recognized as part of the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 20, for the Native American code talkers, South Dakota's congressional delegation said in a statement.
