Charles Chibitty

Charles Chibitty, the last World War II Comanche code-talker, has died (via KiP).

"It's strange, but growing up as a child I was forbidden to speak my native language at school," Chibitty said in 2002. "Later my country asked me to. My language helped win the war and that makes me very proud. Very proud."

Update: The Castle says, Hoka Hey!
