Qa’yol language

Awakatek (Awakateko, Aguacateco, Aguacatec, Awakatek, Aguateco, Awaketec, Coyotin, Chalchitec, Wkateko, Awaketeco, Balamiha, autonym: Qa’yol), is the Greater Mamean Mayan language spoken by 11,000 people in Aguacatán (in Huehuetenango in Guatemala), and in Mexico (Chiapas and Veracruz). Because of its small number of speakers, this language, close to ixil, is considered endangered by UNESCO.

Awakatek people

The Aguacatecos live in the regions of Aguacatán (in Huehuetenango in Guatemala), as well in Chiapas and Veracruz (in Mexico). In Guatemala in Aguacatán, the Aguacatecos live with other communities close to them, the Quichés, Chalchitecos, Mams and Kanjobales.
