Huave, Santa María del MarPrint
500 (1993 SIL).
Southeast coast, Oaxaca, Santa María del Mar.
None known. Very limited intelligibility of other Huave, although most similar to San Dionisio [hve].
Children do not grow up speaking Huave. But when they become adults they all learn it in order to function in the culture (2011 J. Williams). Children learn Spanish first, but learn Huave by adulthood, because adults speak Huave.
