Pipil - Orientation

The Pipil are a contemporary Indian group living along the southern coast of western El Salvador. They are the descendants of the Aztec-related Pipil who migrated from central Mexico to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Presently, there are an estimated 2,000 Pipil Indians living in El Salvador, with the greatest concentrations in the cities of Cuisnahuat and Santo Domingo de Guzmán. Linguistically, Pipil is an Aztecoidan language of the UtoAztecan Family; this sets them apart from many neighboring Indian groups that speak Mayan languages.
