This chapter examines traces of Ch'orti' Maya indigenousness in contemporary El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. In all three countries a common hierarchy of factors marks indigenousness, including language, dress, phenotype, self-identity, and a rustic campesino lifestyle, each of which has its own continuum. It also discusses observations about Ch'orti' ethnicity and indigenousness including those in matters of political, economic, and social life.

Keywords:   Ch'orti' Maya, indigenousness, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, self-identity, campesino lifestyle, ethnicity
