Hi everyone, I'm from the mixteca baja, grew up in Juxtlahuaca and have lived in USA for about 30 years, I speak Mixtec in the dialect of San Juan Mixtepec, although I rarely get to speak the language. When I was living in Juxtlahuaca I could speak and understand the dialect of the neighboring towns but I feel that I have forgotten now. I would like to learn more about my heritage and learn to write in the Mixtec language, if you have anything interesting to add please do so.

Hi, My name is Kevin Lopez-Gomez. I was actually born in Mexico City, but I am from San Juan Mixtepec. I grew up in America and spoke Mixteco growing up. From my understanding of the language, if you follow this link: mixtec.sdsu.edu/language.html and scroll all the way to the bottom. The website claims that the translation of "What is your name?" is "Nixi nani meu?" for San Juan Mixtepec. Though growing up I would say "Nixi nanu?" when speaking to someone of my age or "Nixi nanini?" when speaking to an older person to show respect. So this is my conclusion; either I grew up speaking a different variation of Mixteco from San Juan Mixtepec, that there are multiple San Juan Mixtepecs, this website has a lot of error, or a combination of thereof.
