Tz'utujil language

The Tz'utujil language (Tzutujil, Zutuhil, Tzutujil Oriental, Zotonil), is a Quichean Mayan language (close to Kʼicheʼ and Kaqchikel), spoken by 80,000 people in the southern region of Lake Atitlán in Guatemala. There are four main variants, this one comes from Santiago Atitlán. In some municipalities, tz'utujil remains the spoken language and Spanish the extra-community language of exchange.

The Tz'utujils

The Tz'utujils belong to one of the many Mayan groups of Guatemala. They live in the southern region of Lake Atitlán. Their establishment in this territory is old and seems to date back to the post-classical Mayan period. Tz'utujil weaving, painting and sculpture are renowned, and they still retain traces of their culture even if their Hispanization is already very real.
