Tzjon Non

"Tzjon Non" is an alternate name for the Amuzgo people, a Native American tribe of Mexico. It is one of the tribe's endonyms, that is to say, their name for themselves in their own language, and it means "textile people" or "weavers." It is particularly used among the San Pedro Amuzgos (Oaxaca Amuzgos.)
