Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 30 is the thirtieth episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Medeva steals the Navajo language from the Southwestern States in the 1200s.

After a Data Boost at the time of the crime, the time pilots get a clue from the Elephant Guy, who is running through the year 1868, when the Navajo were sent to boarding schools and where Medeva fries their 'fact fuel.'

Afterwards, the time pilots meet Philip Johnston, who has lived among the Navajo and is now allowing them to become code talkers. His clues lead them to the 1940s, where they do Global Pursuit with Medeva.

Medeva taunts the time pilots about the first Navajo-run community college, which was established in 1968. There, they retrieve the Navajo language and return it to the 13th century.

Carly captures Medeva and Carmen.
