Mazatec (En Ngixo)
The Mazatecan languages are a group of closely Oto-Manguean
languages spoken by about 200,000 people in the Mexican states
of Oaxaca, Puebla and Veracruz. This group of languages is often
referred to as a single language called Mazatec, though the
different varieties of Mazatecan are not mutually intelligible.
Mazatecan languages are tonal and there are forms of
whistle speech used in Mazatecan communities.
