Yucatec Maya, called maaya t'aan by local speakers, is an Indigenous American language spoken in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and Northern Belize. It is the most widely spoken of the surviving Mayan languages which are all descended from a common ancestral language spoken during the Ancient Mayan civilisation over 3,000 years ago. Although the modern-day Mayan languages, which number around 30, share the same language family, they are not generally mutually intelligible. There are Yucatec Maya language radio stations and TV shows and the language is also taught in a minority of primary schools and nurseries. uTalk recorded native speakers from the Yucatan Peninsula at the Indigenous radio station XHNKA-FM.
