A statue in Window Rock that honors Navajo code talkers is shown in this photo provided by the Navajo Nation. The statue is the model for a planned memorial to Navajo code talkers in Wesley Bolin Plaza outside the State Capitol. The Senate Committee on Appropriations on Monday approved $100,000 for the monument, but some senators raised concerns about honoring Navajos above other American Indian tribes that had members serve as code talkers (Photo by Michael Smith, Courtesy of the Navajo Nation).
