TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) - The Cherokee Nation plans to honor soldiers from the nation and other veterans during a wreath-laying ceremony.

The ceremony Friday in Tahlequah also will honor Native American soldiers who used their native languages to relay coded military messages.

A special Code Talkers exhibit will follow the ceremony with panels of memorabilia from World War I and World War II. It also will feature the 2013 Congressional Gold Medal that was awarded to the tribe to recognize Native American code talkers during World War II.

The ceremony and exhibit will be at the Cherokee Nation’s Veterans Center and Warrior Museum in Tahlequah.
