Game Changer Antonio Perechu puts Mayan culture in center field

Americas Now

In the mountains of Guatemala, an indigenous community has found a way to preserve its history through football.

They took the attire worn by their Mayan ancestors, and made it into their official uniform, which includes a colorfully embroidered shirt and a skirt. Now, whether they win or lose the game, spectators always get a kick out of watching them play.

Meet Game Changer and founder of this Mayan football team, Antonio Perechu.
