HONDURAS -- Leadhorse Choctaw is on a journey through the Americas, sharing the traditional Choctaw stickball game and uniting Indigenous Peoples from the north to the south who are living close to the land.

"No borders," is Leadhorse's message today from Honduras. His journey has now taken him to Honduras overland through El Salvador, where he has shared the stickball game and made friends in Indigenous communities throughout Central America.

Leadhorse, Choctaw from Oklahoma, is sharing the traditional game of peace Kabocca Towa (stickball game.)

"It is a game used to settle disputes between tribes and people," Leadhorse said. He welcomed Indigenous Peoples in the south to the world series championship in Choctaw, Mississippi, in mid July in 2014.

Leadhorse's journey continues though Indigenous communities in Central and South America. His destination is Argentina. 

"It is the ruta de la paz, the route of peace," Leadhorse said today from Honduras.
