Chorti Community

Kathryn & Jessie went looking for deaf in one of Honduras’ indigenous people groups, the Chorti people. La Pintada is a beautiful mountain top community outside Copan Ruinas accessible mainly on foot or horseback. The children eagerly followed us around the village and wanted to sing us the Honduran National Anthem in their Chorti language. A hard of hearing woman worked making dolls out of corn husks.
