Tujaal tziij language

Sacapultec (Sacapulteco, Tujaal tziij, Sakapulteko, qač’ab’a:l, Sakapultek, Sacapulas K’iche’), is one of the Mayan languages spoken by Sakapulteks in central Guatemala. This quichean-mamean language, is spoken by Sakapultek people, around the town of Sacapulas (department of El Quiché).

In Guatemala, various associations and the government are trying to revitalize the cultural and linguistic riches of the Mayan people, because the country is multilingual and multicultural, even if Spanish is the dominant and written language.
