University of Utah Creates Shoshone Language Video Game

(KCPW-August 23, 2013) August 14 was National Navajo Code Talker Day. It’s a day commemorating the role of Navajo code talkers who used their native language to transmit secret information during World War II.

Today, many American Indian languages are dying out. To help remedy this problem, some Shoshone students are using a new kind of code — video game programming code — to help save their language and promote their culture.
