|Linguistic classification:||Hokan ?
The Tequistlatecan languages are in Mexico at the left of the map.
They were spoken by 4,400 people in 2010.
The Tequistlatecan languages are part the proposed Hokan family, but are often considered to be distinct family. Campbell and Oltrogge (1980) proposed that the Tequistlatecan languages may be related to Jicaquean (see Tolatecan), but this hypothesis has not been generally accepted.
