We have created our Tell Me A Story studio, where we will record our elders sharing their stories. Our goal is to build on the knowledge visitors already have about American Indians, challenge stereotypes and connect them to both the past and the present. We often address the difficulties experienced by many Native people. Indian history is not always pleasant to hear, but the stories need to be told so we can all reach a place of understanding.

On this day, we honor the service of the Navajo Code Talkers, who served during battles in the Pacific Theater during World War II. The Navajo Code, which substituted or used words in their language for English words, was used to send messages on the battlefield between units and to headquarters. The code was never broken by the Japanese. In 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared Aug. 14 to be National Navajo Code Talkers Day.

It was at that moment, the fish regretted its decision to get out of bed that morning. 🦅

Scenes like this play out every day at the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge. The fish will sometimes escape, but the bald eagle is always the top predator in this version of hunter vs. hunted.
