Totonacan Family
Tepehua, Totonac


The Totonacan family includes various languages or varieties that have been called either Totonac or Tepehua—names that represent two branches in the family. The languages are spoken in the states of Puebla, Hidalgo, and Veracruz.

In recent years, strong evidence has been published that links the Mixe-Zoquean family of languages with the Totonacan family (the Totozoquean stock).
