Additional Information

The 3 Inch Oglala Sioux Tribe Code Talkers Bronze Medal is a duplicate of the Congressional Gold Medal awarded to Oglala Sioux Tribe Code Talkers at a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol Building on November 20, 2013, in recognition of their dedication and valor.

The obverse design features a Code Talker with a stylized eagle in the background. Inscriptions are “OGLALA” and “LAKOTA AKICITA IYESKA WICASA,” which translates to “Indian soldier translator man.”

The nine tipis represent the nine districts of Oglala – Porcupine, Wakpamni, Medicine Root, Pass Creek, Eagle Nest, White Clay, PR Village, La Creek and Wounded Knee – all of which are inscribed along the border of the design. Other inscriptions are “WORLD WAR II,” “2008 ACT OF CONGRESS” and “AKICITA OKOLAKICIYE,” which translates to “warrior's society.”
