Additional background on Tzutujil

The Tz'utujil (Tzutujil, Tzutuhil, Sutujil) are a Native American people, one of the 21 Maya ethnic groups that dwell in Guatemala. Together with the Xinca, Garífunas (Black Caribs) and the Ladinos, they make up the 24 ethnic groups in this relatively small country. Approximately 100,000 Tz'utujil live in the area around Lake Atitlan.

The term Tz'utujil also denotes their native language, and their nation in pre-Columbian times, a part of the ancient Maya civilization.
