Indigenous language * Indian culture and tradition * American Indian heritage


"Huajintepec" is the name of an indigenous Mexican village of the Amuzgo tribe. Although the villagers are Amuzgo, the name of the village comes from the Nahuatl (Aztec) language, where it means "hill of gourd-trees." It is also spelled other ways such as Huaxintepec, Guajentepec, and so on. The Huajintepec people speak the Southern Amuzgo dialect.
