Louis Levi Oakes, a 96-year-old Mohawk veteran from Akwesasne, is the last surviving Mohawk code talker. The Mohawk language was one of 33 Indigenous languages used to send encoded messages between Allied forces during the Second World War. Oakes was awarded the Silver Star Medal for his service. His contributions to Allied forces' efforts during the war were recognized by the Assembly of First Nations and the House of Commons.
