It is a member of Buschmann's Aztec-Sonora group, though its relations to Aztec are rather phonetical than structural; there are three varieties, Ateakari, Muntzicat, and Teakualitzigti. Type strikingly Mongolic, high cheek bones, oblique eyes, dull yellow complexion, flat features, and in habits resembling some Siberian peoples.
