Cuicatec love poem
Na chi ynai nai
Di na chi ynai nai
Ndudus ndebée ngáa ñée di
Nat dinun chinuu, chu ni cuinu
¡Di munn chinuu “nene née di!
(thanks to Universidad publica à Región cuicateca)

The Dbaku (Cúu Cáa, Tepeuxila Cuicatec, Cuicateco del centro, Center Cuicatec) is one of the three variants of the cuicatec language. It is spoken by the Cuicatèque community of San Juan Tepeuxila, in fact Cúu Cáa. The other two variants of Cuicatec, an Oto-mango language, from the Mixtecan group, from Oaxaca (Mexico), are the Nduaku and the Duaku. For all of these three dialects, the number of speakers is estimated at 14,000, and for the word itself, it comes from the Nahuatl, and means "those who inhabit".
The Cuicatecs (Nduudu yu) are related to the Mixtecs. They live in the Cañada region, in the district of Cuicatlán, north of Oaxaca (Mexico). The two main cities of their territory are Tepeuxila and Teutila.
