Pima Bajo (Mountain Pima, Lowland Pima, Nevome) is a Mexican indigenous language of the Piman branch of the Uto-Aztecan language family, spoken by around 1,000 speakers in northern Mexico. The language is called O'ob No'ok by its speakers. The closest related languages are the O'odham (Pima and Papago) and the Tepehuán languages.

Speakers of Oob No'ok live primarily in small family ranches rather than towns. Their material culture is like that of most of northern Mexico.

Morphology[edit]

Pima Bajo is an agglutinative language, where words use suffix complexes for a variety of purposes with several morphemes strung together.
