Mazahua is an Oto-Manguean language spoken by about 128,000 people mainly in the Mexican state of México in the municipality of San Felipe del Progreso, also in the state of Michoacán. The language is known as Jñatjo by its speakers, who refer to themselves as Hñatho. The name Mazahua comes from Nahuatl and means "the owners of deer".
Mazahua has official status in the areas where it is spoken on an equal footing with Spanish.
There are some Mazahua radio broadcasts on a radio station based in Tuxpan in Michoacán.
I'm not sure about the Mazahua pronunciation, so welcome any feedback.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
