Dan Akee, a 94-year-old Navajo Code Talker got to go home to the house he built 60 years before because of Red Feather Development Group. Six years ago he and his wife Margaret were forced to move into a trailer next door after the house had become uninhabitable due to a leaky roof, broken windows and no heat source. The WWII hero’s only wish was to “Go Home” and that somehow, someway his house would be restored for him to live there again before he died. Russel Begaye, President of the Navajo Nation thanked Red Feather for completing what had been begun 90 days before. “Wow, the house is amazing and benefitting of a national WWII hero and inspiration of the Navajo Nation.” Over $30,000 raised through generosity.com and another $50,000 in materials were donated for the project. Dan Akee is one of 10 remaining Navajo Code Talkers from WWII.
