Popolocan Family

Chocholteco (ngigua), Mazatec, Popoloca, Ixcatec

SIL has not done extensive investigations in Chocholteco of Oaxaca (also known as Ngigua).


Mazatec includes four or five important variants (in Oaxaca, Veracruz and Puebla). The Summer Institute of Linguistics has done investigations in four of these.

The name Ixcatec is used for another language of this family, believed by many to be extinct, and also for a variant of Mazatec.
