K'iche' (K’iche’) Bible - New Testament

Kʼicheʼ ([kʼiˈtʃeʔ], also Qatzijobʼal "our language" to its speakers), or Quiché (), is a Maya language of Guatemala, spoken by the Kʼicheʼ people of the central highlands. With over a million speakers (some 7% of Guatemala's population), Kʼicheʼ is the second-most widely spoken language in the country after Spanish. The Central dialect is the most commonly used in the media and education. The literacy rate is low, but Kʼicheʼ is increasingly taught in schools and used on radio. The most famous work in the Classical Kʼicheʼ language is the Popol Vuh (Popol Wuʼuj in modern spelling).
