NACO, pronounced as na-cho, is an acronym for the Otuho-Speaking Community of North America. Formed during the Christmas season of 2005, NACO in Otuho languages means leaning to each other to support one another. This organization is therefore formed with the aim to support each other not only in North America (Canada and the United States of America) but also everywhere the Otuho-Speaking members do exist.
