Native American birthday card

Q: We would like to have a typical text which Indians from Mexico use for the birthday of their children. Do you know what i mean? This text then is supposed to be printed on the birthcard, maybe they had a kind of poetry.

A: I don't know of any special poems or sayings for a child's birthday, but our Zapotec speaker suggested the word Rizaca, which means: Congratulations!

Hope that helps!
