Being a Navajo Code Talker

This presentation is coordinated to celebrate the ONEBOOKAZ for Kids 2011 title, Code Talker, by Joseph Bruchac.

Ms. Towne was raised in Glendale and on the Navajo reservation. She attended NAU to study Music Education with a Vocal emphasis and left to begin a professional career in entertainment. For over 8 years, Ms. Towne coordinated code talkers’ special appearances. She currently lives in Phoenix, where she works as an administrative assistant.
