MAYA002R003I003: This is a description about Indigenous languages from Guatemala arranged by genetic clasification and geographical distribution with every dialect spoken and the place where it is spoken; it also includes the number of the population who speak the language (census from 1964). It contains a list of town names, dialects and numbers of speakers. This document is typed, and Kuafman made notes on it in green ink.
