The Pame language, number 1 (azure), north.
The Pame language is an indigenous language of Mexico spoken by around 10,000 Pame people in the state of San Luis Potosí. The Pame language belongs to the Oto-Pamean branch of the Oto-manguean language family. The Ethnologue counts two living varieties of Pame: Central Pame  spoken in the town of Santa María Acapulco, and Northern Pame  spoken in communities from the north of Río Verde to the border with Tamaulipas. Pame languages are tonal and distinguish high and low level tones and a high-low contour tone(Suaréz 1983, pg 51).
