Xochistlahuaca Amuzgo

"Xochistlahuaca" 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 "field of flowers." The native Amuzgo name for the town is SuljaŠ. The Xochistlahuaca people speak the Northern Amuzgo dialect, which consequently is sometimes known as Xochistlahuaca Amuzgo.
