This video was recorded by Daniel Bögre Udell in Guatemala. The Sakapultek language is a language spoken by about 15,000 speakers in Guatemala, mostly in El Quiché department, as well as in Guatemala City. It is a Mayan language, part of the Greater Quiché branch thereof, and is closely related to the K’iche’ language. While many, even young parents, still speak Sakapulteko, transmission to younger generations is limited, with most becoming monolingual in Spanish. Literacy among native speakers is below 1%, but a promising 16% of L2 learners are literate in the language as well.
