Navajo Veteran's Memorial - Code Talker Statue




Navajo Veteran's Memorial - Code Talker Statue





This park near the Navajo Nation Administration Center features the graceful redstone arch for which the capital is named. The Navajo Nation headquarters and other government offices were built in close proximity to this mystical rock formation.

More recently, the Navajo Nation has built a Veterans Memorial at the base of Window Rock to honor the many Navajos who served in the U. S. military. Many Navajo soldiers are recognized in the annals of history for their role as Code Talkers, whereby they used the Navajo language to create a code that was never broken by the enemy. Historians credit the Navajo Code Talkers for helping to win World War II.

This park is significant because it was designed and built by the Navajo, it is their “living” Veteran’s Memorial. The idea for the Memorial evolved from within a group of Native Vietnam Veterans, Navajo Code Talker’s, and culturally important, Navajo medicine men. After much deliberation the preliminary sketches and designs for the Memorial were drawn out. The park is in the shape of a medicine wheel. Which to many Native Americans including the Navajo is a primary representation of the four cardinal directions, the four sacred colors, the circle of life, and at the center – the eternal fire.

A highlight of the memorial, a favorite that captures the awe of every visitor, are the 16 steel bayonets. The original designs featured glass panels atop and between each bayonet. Each glass pane was to have the name of soldier’s killed in action etched on the surfaces. The projected scenario, as a person walks beneath the pillars the sun light shines through the etched mirror imaged names, “The dead shield the living as they look skyward to
forever, as the sun moves, so too do the names onto the earth, the land, then the stone”-author unknown-. As of now the Memorial is somewhat incomplete. Yet it can still resonate the sacredness it was meant to.

"Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one."
~ Jane Howard

The Medicine Wheel teaches the four directions of the races, Red people, Yellow people, Black people and White people. These four directions are symbolic of all races. Everything in the circle is connected and related. All races are brothers and sisters. If we are related to each other, then it is important to love one another as brother and sister, aunt and uncle, Fathers and Mothers, Grandfathers and Grandmothers. We need to care for each other and especially respect each other. We need to honor one another's differences whether that difference is the color of our skin or our opinions. We should respect differences. My Creator, let me feel the connectedness to all things. Let me know the lessons I need to learn today. Above all, let me feel my connectedness to You.
