CHORTI VOCABULARIO PDF

Sin embargo en Honduras, el idioma Chorti esta en peligro de extinguirse y solo un reducido grupo de personas lo habla. Fueron perseguidos y capturados, sometidos a la esclavitud, despojados de sus territorios, tratados inhumanamente y obligados a renunciar a su cultura y aceptar una que ellos no deseaban. Tal es el caso de la manera en que los antiguos Mayas edificaban sus viviendas y sus majestuosos. Las principales actividades culturales que identifican a Los Chortis son dos, la primera es el Tzikin, una ceremonia consistente en el agradecimiento a la Madre tierra para que hayan lluvias torrenciales y el descanso sus difuntos.

This covers parts of modern-day Honduras and Guatemala. Although the area is completely shaded in, the majority of speakers reside in Guatemala, while the rest are sparsely distributed throughout the rest of the area. As of right now, there are only 10 remaining native speakers in Honduras. Even though Guatemala has established Spanish as its official language, it supports the teaching of these native languages. Traditionally, the highland Maya Indian people were dependent on maize and beans.

Much of their land was lost to the Guatemalan government in the nineteenth century as well. Illiteracy rates in these communities fall between 92 and percent, infant mortality rates of 60 percent, and life expectancy being 49 years for men and 55 years for women. A conflict that has effected the Copan area immensely is land tenure. Shortly after the Spanish conquest, the land and people became Spanish property.

The land was then used in the aparceria system farmers rent land in return for payment of a proportion of the harvest obtained. This system was stable for hundreds of years, until the Honduran government signed Convention of the International Labour Organization ILO in Glottolog 3.
