Smithsonian exhibit honors American Indian WWII vets

The Montana Historical Society is scheduling the Smithsonian Institution’s “Native Words, Native Warriors” exhibit to tour the state’s Indian reservations.

The Smithsonian created the exhibit to tell the story of Indian Marines and soldiers who used their native languages as codes to fight U.S. enemies.

Montana Historical Society Board of Trustees member George Horse Capture of Great Falls initiated the exhibit when he was a Smithsonian curator, and will serve as guest curator of the Montana exhibit.

The historical society plans to launch the exhibit in Helena in April and then take it to the state’s Indian reservations.
