Ñumí Mixtec is a diverse Mixtec language of Oaxaca. It may be closest to Peñasco Mixtec.

Egland & Bartholomew[5] found four dialects which have ca. 80% mutual intelligibility with each other, spoken in the following towns:

  • (San Juan) Ñumí, (Santiago) Nunduchi, (San Sebastián) Nicananduta
  • (San Antonio) Monteverde
  • (Santo Tomás) Ocotepec
