Pima Bajo (O:b No'ok, Nevome)
Pima Bajo is a Uto-Aztecan language of Mexico, spoken today by a
few hundred indigenous people in the mountains between Sonora and Chihuahua.
There are two dialects of Pima Bajo, a Sonoran dialect and a Chihuahuan one. Some linguists consider these dialects distinct enough to
be separate languages, but speakers of different dialects can understand each other fairly well.
