NAVAJO CODE TALKERS MUSEUM TRADEMARK LICENSING PROGRAM
This guide is designed to help the individuals determine to what extent certain Navajo Code Talkers Museum and Navajo Code Talkers names, logos, slogans, insignia, and other marks (“NCTM Marks”) require permission for third-party commercial use. Many trademarks contained in this guide are for NCTM use only and are not available for unofficial use.
Basic NCTM policy: The NCTM considers the term NAVAJO CODE TALKER and NAVAJO CODE TALKERS to be a trademark when used as a trademark in the Navajo Code Talker or military context, and/or in a manner relating to the Navajo Code Talkers (Native American/Navajo Nation). As such, a t-shirt that says “Navajo Code Talker,” “Proud Navajo Code Talker,” “My Dad was a Navajo Code Talker,” etc., would require a trademark license.
