On the eve of Veterans Day, we salute all US military vets,

On the eve of Veterans Day, we salute all US military vets, but especially the courageous members of the U S Marine Corps. Navajo Code Talkers, the last of which, Chester Nez, died on June 4, 2014 at his home in Albuquerque, NM. He was 93 years old. 

The Navajo Code Talkers, also later known as Wind Talkers, the title of a fictional movie based on their efforts in World War II, were active in every major campaign in the Pacific Theater.

Between their native language, which was unwritten at the time and heavily dependent on tonality for understanding, and cryptology the Navajo Code Talkers developed for use in battle, the messages sent were never broken by the Japanese. As result, the Code Talkers were able to communicate strategy, commands and results from positions in the midst of battle in the matter not of the customary minutes, but in less than 30 seconds.

Navajo Code Talkers were instrumental and critical in the success of Marine and other US military engagements throughout the Pacific. To be clear, while the Navajo Code Talkers in the US Marines while the most celebrated Code Talkers, they were not the only Native Americans engaged in cryptology on the Allies side in wars. Cherokees, Choctaws, Comanches and Meskwakis also participated in WWI and WWII.

The exploits of the Navajos in the Marine Corps in WWII are the best known and deservedly so. The Japanese had broken previous English-based codes, often with success in battles as a result. These brave Native Americans faced remarkable battlefield dangerous to help the United State prevail in the Pacific. All Americans owe them a massive debt of gratitude. As recognized in a special message from the Marine Corps upon the passing of Chester Nez, the last living Navajo Code Talker, "We mourn his passing but honor and celebrate the indomitable spirit and dedication of those Marines who became known as the Navajo code talkers,"

This tradition of heroic service by Native Americans continues today as Zuni Indians, artists and carvers, head off to fight forest fires every year at the height of the fire season in the West.

Give Your Zuni Fetish Carvings a Place to Feed & Shelter

As traditional as Zuni fetish carvings are, there is a companion tradition that every Zuni fetish collector should engage with: The Zuni Fetish Bowl. 

Usually coated with turquoise or other crushed stone, it contains ground turquoise and corn meal to provide nourishment for the hard-working protective fetishes of Zuni belief.

A small hole in the side wall allows access for the fetishes to enter and exit the fetish bowl. Often other fetish carvings were attached to the circumference wall. now has a new fetish bowl created by Robert Michael Weahkie, scion of the famous Weahkie clan of carvers, which includes Lena Boone, Dinah Gasper, Evalena Boone, Leland Boone, Debra Gasper and Peter Gasper Jr.

Since the price of turquoise has escalated so much, the 5" x 6" size of this Zuni fetish bowl dictated a coating of ground sodalite, similar in color to turquoise, although more intensely blue. (Believers in the powers of gemstone minerals attribute strong healing powers to sodalite.)

Inside the bowl is a mole carved from antler by Robert Michael Weahkie. The mole is considered a protector of threats from the netherworld. Atop the opening of the bowl, suspended by crossed strands of sinew, rests an eagle carved from antler, protector for the heavens. Surrounding the bowl are four more fetish directional protectors, each also carved from antler: mountain lion, bear, badger and wolf.

Robert Michael Weahkie favors antler for his carvings, which also  include altar figures of varying sizes. All of his artistry and other Zuni artists can be seen at
