The speaker, Alejandro Alvarez, is originally from the village of Río Venado in the Putla District of western Oaxaca.  INALI identifies 4 variants of Triqui, this one they label  tnanj ni’inj  or “triqui de la baja.”  Alejandro, as do several of our other speakers, takes issues with INALI’s label for his language, noting that “tnanaj ni’inj” translates as “little language” (“lengua chiquita”). He prefers the designation:  tnanj sho’ah meaning “Triqui language”  (tnanj = language or tongue; ni’inj = little, small.)
