linaje : Saqajib
One of the thirteen allied lineages.
Christenson (p. 204 note 513) derives the name of this lineage from Saq Aj “White Ear of Unripe Maize.”
Tedlock (p. 360) glosses it differently as saq k’ajib’, or “White Cornmeals,” saying “they must have settled in the area of the present town of Salcajá, called Saqk’aja in Quiché.”
Ximénez’s spelling, zacahib, is ambiguous, as his orthography would likely not distinguish between -q- and -qk’-.
