The Otomi are one of the most ancient peoples of Mexico. They have lived in Central Mexico ever since the development of agriculture or even longer. A warlike people, they served as mercenaries in the armies of many Mesoamerican civilisations and got their name from the otmitl, the crack military order of the Aztecs, in which many of them served. In their own language they are called Hnahnu. With more than half a million people the Otomi are still one of the biggest indigenous groups of Mexico.
Initial government is Despotism.
