  1. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard this exact recording before on the youtube channel ILoveLanguages, and if I remember right it was an indigenous language of Mexico. I think it’s an Oto-Manguean language but I don’t know which one

  2. CDK,
    I went into the various languages in the Oto-Manguean family and I found Copala de Triqui. I am not sure if I found the passage being read but the person reading it certainly seems to have the same voice. Maybe you are right!

  3. It seems to be a language of Mexico, (perhaps Otomangue-triqui de Copala, I agree with CDK and Hank). To my understanding it does not seem to be either Mayan or Andean (Quechua, Aymara …), or Uto-Nahua, or Mapudungun (Mapuche, Huilliche). It resembles some Amazonian languages, but … after the previous quiz … it was not Turkish-Mongolian but Berber – ha ha !! … clearly I don’t know.
