The Spaniards called them Tarascos but they refer themselves as P'urépechas, which in their language means "people". They are located in the Purépecha-Uruapan plateau of the Transversal Volcanic System in the center-north of the State of Michoacán.

It is believed to be derived from the terms maya' or mayab. The first is a reference to the name of the territory and is used with certain related words; the second has as a possible meaning "little", "not much", that is, the place where there were few people.
The Yucatec Maya are located in the States of Quintana Roo, Campeche and Yucatan.

MAYA TSOTSIL

The Tsotsiles are the batsil winiki'otik, "real men". The word Tsotsil derives from sots'il winik, "bat man", and the name comes from a legend that says that the ancestors of the Zinacantecos found a bat in the meadow and believed it to be god.

They inhabit the Highlands of the State of Chiapas. The Tsotsil territory is at the northwest and southwest of the city of San Cristóbal De Las Casas and its language is spoken in several communities such as Chamula, Zinacantan etc.

NAHUA DE GUERRERO

Nahuatl comes from the Nahua root (nawa), which in English means "clear sound" or "thing that sounds good." After Spanish, it is the second most spoken language in the State of Guerrero and is the indigenous language with the largest number of speakers in the country. Despite having the predominance, the Nahuatl language has dialectal variants.
They are found in the North-Central and Mountain regions of the State of Guerrero; its main settlements are in the Low Mountain, in the High Mountain, in the Depression of the Balsas and the Costa Chica.
