Native American language * Native American Indian culture * Indian ancestry


"Tlacoachistlahuaca" is the name of an indigenous Amuzgo village in Guerrero, Mexico. Though the community is Amuzgo, the town's name comes from the Nahuatl (Aztec) language, where it means "opossum place." The Tlacoachistlahuaca people speak the Northern Amuzgo dialect.
