The Ch’orti’ People

The Ch’orti’ people are the closest related -linguistically- to the Mayan of the Classic era and they are directly descendants of the Maya who inhabited the great city of Copan.

Their number are dwindling, with fewer than 50 thousand speakers of their indigenous language left in Guatemala and a smaller amount in Honduras.
