The Mixtec (or Mixteca) are an indigenous Mesoamerican people inhabiting the Mexican state of Oaxaca. The Mixtecan languages form an important branch of the Otomanguean linguistic family.
The term Mixtec (Mixteco in Spanish) comes from the Aztec word of Mixtecapan, or place of the cloud-people. The area in which Mixtec is spoken is known as the Mixteca. The Mixtecs call themselves ˝uu savi, ˝uu djau, ˝uu davi, naa savi, etc., depending on the local variant of their language, the Sa'an Davi, Da'an Davi or Tu'un Savi.
