Abstract
 
Description
Artist, merchant, patriot, and a respected Navajo leader and spokesman, Carl Gorman is one of those rare people whose life encompasses the drama of an entire society. One of the original Navajo Code Talkers in World War II, Gorman would later become president of the Code Talkers Association and help to bring recognition to the Navajos who created the Navajo-language-based combat code that the Japanese could never break. After the war, following a lifelong interest in art, he studied at Otis Institute and became a respected artist and teacher.This biography gives a fascinating account of Gorman's childhood and youth in Navajo country and of the tribals he experienced at different Indian schools. It describes Navajo art, culture, and major events of Navajo history. Gorman's life has embraced success, hardship, and searing personal tragedy and demonstrated a resilience of spirit that has been inspirational to all who know him. Achieving success in the Anglo world on his own terms, he has continually brought respect to the Navajo way of life. - from Amzon
