Did you know that native Hondurans are called “Catrachos”. The term comes from the mid-19th century when Honduran General Florencio Xatruch returned from battle with his soldiers after defeating American William Walker, whose purpose was to conquer Central America. When the soldiers returned, Nicaraguans yelled out “¡Vienen los Xatruches!”, which meant, “Here come Xatruch’s boys!” Nicaraguans had a difficult time pronouncing Xatruch, so they altered the phrase to “los catruches” which ultimately became los “Catrachos”
