Native American language
Native American Indian culture
"Ñomndaa" is an alternate name for Amuzgo, a Native American language of Mexico.
It means "water language," or "words of water." This is the indigenous name used by many
(though not all) Amuzgo communities to refer to their own language. The name "Amuzgo"
comes from the neighboring Nahuatl (Aztec) language.
