Mam Information

Mam is a Mayan language primarily spoken in the Mexican state of Chiapas and in the Guatemalan departments of Quetzaltenango, Huehuetenango, and San Marcos, all of which are along the Mexican border.

Language Facts

Mam is the fourth most spoken Mayan language in Guatemala, out of 22 total Mayan languages spoken in the country.

The region from which Mam speakers originate is of extremely high altitude, home to two of the tallest peaks in Central America: Volcano Tajulmuco in the Department of San Marcos and Volcano Tacana which straddles the Mexico-Guatemala border. The Mayan legend is that Tajulmuco was a great Mayan warrior and Tacana was a Mayan princess. One of the Shamans in the community was also in love with Tacana, and out of jealousy, converted the Tajulmuco and Tacana into volcanoes so they could not be together. However, the Sun decided to help Tacana and Tajulmuco share their love. Every sunrise, the first rays of sunlight hit Volcano Tajulmuco and his shade immediately casts onto Volcano Tacana, which they refer to as the “good morning kiss.” Similarly, every evening, the Sun’s last rays of sunlight beam onto Volcano Tacana who “kisses” Tajulmuco with her shade, the “good night kiss.”

Mam communities are largely agricultural, cash crops being primarily corn as well as potatoes. As emmigration within Mam communities has increased exponentially in the past few years, it has created a large Mam diaspora, primarily in the United States. This is largely as a result of climate change, displacement because of the presence of transnational megaprojects (such as mining), and instability because of US border militarization extending to the Mexico-Guatemala border. In 2016, Mam was the ninth most spoken language in US Immigration Courts, which just five years prior, it was not even in the top 25 most spoken languages.

Writing

Mam is written using a Latin font, contains 10 vowels and 27 consonants along with a glottal stop. The Mam word for “butterfly” contains a glottal stop: paaki’l. The glottal stop is written as an apostrophe and signifies a pause in the word, much like “Uh-Oh” in English.
