Tlacolulita Zapotec (Southeastern Yautepec Zapotec) is a Zapotec language of Oaxaca, Mexico. It is not closely related to other languages.

In May 2014, students from Swarthmore College visited Tlacolula de Matamoros to present their online Tlacolula Valley Zapotec talking dictionary to local leaders. It was estimated that about 100 elderly speakers remain.[3]
