ANCIENT GREEK SCULPTURE

THE ARAUKANS OF CHILI

An ancient Greek sculpture depicting a game similar to hokey.


A drawing from the time of the occupation of South America by the Spanish (1500-1600 AD)  Here too we can see the same game played by the Araukans of Chili...



What is most surprizing, is not that hokey might come from this ancient game called (Kiritizin) by the Chilians, but the fact that ancient Greeks had travelled to America long before Colombus did!
