American Indian culture
"Ometepec" is the name of an indigenous Amuzgo village in Mexico.
Although the majority of the community is Amuzgo, the name of the village comes from the Nahuatl (Aztec) language,
where it means "between the hills." There are also Nahua and Mixtec people living in Ometepec as well as Amuzgos.
The Ometepec Amuzgos speak the Southern Amuzgo dialect.
