About Nahuatl:

Although Classical Nahuatl--the extinct ancient language used by the Aztec Empire and recorded in mysterious glyphs--is the best-known form of the language to outsiders, modern Nahuatl is still very much a living language, with a dozen variants spoken by more than two million indigenous Mexicans.

Many Nahuatl words have directly or indirectly influenced our vocabulary, such as chocolate (from xocolatl), avocado (from ahuacatl) and coyote (from coyotl) among others.

Nahuatl is one of the largest indigenous Mexican languages both at home as well as in New York City. Because of its unique position in Mexican history, there are many who are interested in learning it as a second language. Endangered Language Alliance (ELA) has been working with local speakers of various dialects of Nahuatl to supplement existing documentation as well as create pedagogical materials with audio. Mano a Mano has received assistance form the ELA to organize Nahuatl classes this semester with maestro Irwin Sanchez.
