Honoring Historical Native Americans Hidden in History

There are many hidden historical figures in history that have made major contributions to our society. Extraordinary groups of people such as women, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans and Native Americans, with the exception of a few, were excluded from history text.

Representation of Native Americans in history books are both historically inaccurate and only covers a small bit of history during the exploration of Columbus, Thanksgiving and the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890. It’s not just presidents, generals, and explorers that have influenced our past, but people from all walks of life who have been left out or forgotten.

Corporal Solomon Bond Louis (1899-1972) of the Choctaw Nation and leader of the Choctaw Code Talkers was instrumental in devising a system of communications that helped to defeat the Germans during World War I. Louis along with 15 other Choctaw natives paved the way for the Navajo Code Talkers in World War II.
