Many people know of the heroic exploits in WW2of the Navajos, Comanches, Hopies and Meskwakis due movies and press. But most don't know that there was a group of Choctaw men called the "Telephone Squad" who were code talkers during WW1.
Although Native Americans did not have the right to vote in the US, the warrior spirit in them rose up as they went to help protect those who could not protect themselves. Using their language to help win battles, while back home they were punished for using the same language.
In 1998 France presented the Choctaw Nation the “Chevalier de l’Order Na-tional du Merite” in recognition of the important role of the Code Talkers.

This shirt is meant to honor these men and to share some history that you may not know.
We used the traditional Choctaw Diamond pattern for the background, with the word Tvshka Humma (Tushka homma - Red Warrior) written on it. We have the Biskinik, a bird that would spread news from one village to the next, most think its a speckled, scissortail species of woodpecker.

One of the men in the Squad was Joseph Oklahombi, the highest decorated soldier from Oklahoma.

True to size for both men (unisex) and women. See photo for women sizing specs.
