Achi (Achí in Spanish) is a Mayan language very closely related to K'iche' (Quiché in the older orthography). It is spoken by the Achi people, primarily in the department of Baja Verapaz in Guatemala.
One of the masterpieces of precolumbian literature is the Rabinal Achí, a theatrical play written in the Achi language.
