YAITEPEC CHATINO

Yaitepec Chatino (called Chaʔ-tnya by its speakers) is an Eastern Chatino language from the Zapotecan branch of Oto-Manguean. The language is spoken by a population of approximately 3,400 speakers in the highlands of Oaxaca state, atop the mountains overlooking Puerto Escondido on the Pacific coast, mainly in the towns of Santiago Yaitepec and Santa Catarina Juquila. It is closely related to the Chatino languages spoken in San Miguel Panixtlahuaca and San Juan Quiahije.
