27137Hñähñu (Otomie) web page - new
- Apr 11, 2014
I dedicate this page to the Hñähñu (Otomie) People of Mexico, and to Denis Veri and his class at the
"UNIVERSIDAD AUTÓNOMA DEL ESTADO DE HIDALGO" who gave me the inspiration to create it.
The two most populous Otomie groups are the Highland or Sierra Otomí living in the mountains of La Huasteca and the Mezquital Otomí, living in the Mezquital Valley in the eastern part of the state of Hidalgo, and in the state of Querétaro. Sierra Otomí usually self identify as Ñuhu or Ñuhmu depending on the dialect they speak, whereas Mezquital Otomi self-identify as Hñähñu (pronounced [ʰɲɑ̃ʰɲũ]). Smaller Otomi populations exist in the states of Puebla, Mexico, Tlaxcala, Michoacán and Guanajuato. The Otomi language belonging to the Oto-Pamean branch of the Oto-Manguean language family is spoken in many different varieties some of which are not mutually intelligible.
