💫HISTORY: The indigenous Otomi people, also known as Ñuhu or Hñähñu depending on their dialect, live in the central Mexican altiplano region in the highlands and valleys. Otomi people can be found mainly in Hidalgo, but can also be found in EdoMex, Querétaro, Puebla, Veracruz, San Luis Potosí, Guanajuato, Tlaxcala, and Michoacán.
🇲🇽The Otomi culture is one of the older complex Mesoamerican cultures, & lived peacefully near the Olmecs until the Nahua arrived around 1000 BCE.
💭There are 4 main languages spoken by the Otomi that are all generally referred to as Otomi, & all four branches share similar cultural practices. Around 300,000 Otomi live in Mexico today, most speaking Spanish but many of them still keeping the Otomi dialects alive.
🧵What is Otomi Embroidery?
The Otomi textiles, also known as tenangos take weeks or even years for the women to embroider, and are said to be based off of cliff painting in the Tepehua-Otomi mountains in the area. Some say that they may be also inspired by cave paintings in the Mexican Plateau area.

While some of the shapes tend to be more abstract, most of them are based on motifs that can date back to 100s of years ago.
