Cora is a Uto-Aztecan language of central Mexico.
Two dialects of the language, Cora de El Nayar and Cora de Santa Teresa, are so different from each other that they
are considered separate languages by some linguists. Taken together, the Cora languages are spoken by about
16,000 people, including a community of a few hundred Mexican immigrants in western Colorado.
