If you are not fluent in Mexican Spanish, and wonder about some of the words in The Hummingbird's Daughter, you might refer to this entry in Wikipedia.
Thanks, Dennis. I'm going to add to this: here is the translation of the first non-off-color full sentence in Spanish that isn't translated: In the book, it starts with "Llegaron con el amancer,..." and it means, "Arrived with the dawn. No riding horses. Walking, leaping like deer, flying like vultures." You'll know which sentence when you get there in the book or if you have been there.
Also, you can use translate.google.com for some words and sentences.
