  • Episode Description
  • Members of the JAG team encounter resistance from Navajo tribal elders when they insist on DNA testing to verify that human remains are those of heroic Navajo "code-talker" Jimmy Blackhorse, who has been missing since World War II. Forensic pathologist Lt. Cmdr. Teresa Coulter joins Harm and Mac on the case. The Navajo elders consider it a sacrilege to tamper with the remains of the dead and, furthermore, the Navajo medicine woman is certain that the remains do not belong to the esteemed Blackhorse. While the veracity of scientific evidence is argued against that of tribal custom and the metaphysical, Teresa finds herself falling for Harm and putting the entire assignment in jeopardy.moreless

  • This is a fabulous episode. A few years ago I did a research paper in my history class over the “code talkers.” Honestly, until I had done the paper I never even heard of the “code talkers.” My grandmother had never heard of them until I told her.

    • Paul Begay: (after declaring DNA testing a sacrilege) You've got some Native American blood in you, Major. Mac: Cherokee. Paul Begay: I'm surprised you're not getting this. Mac: Mr. Begay, according to my understanding of the history of Native America, the Navajo were an adaptive people. The Cherokee had to be forced onto reservations. Your instinct should be to accept, mine to resist. I'm surprised you're not getting that!

    • Harm: (as he grabs a pastry) I gave up cigars last night. Any words of encouragement? Chegwidden: Don't get fat.
