Inmates using dead language to communicate

SANTA FE, N.M.--Some inmates are resurrecting a dead language to build a new empire inside prison walls.

The prisoners are using the Aztec language to communicate with each other.

Prison officers spotted a letter and it sparked an investigation.

Thirty inmates are now being investigated for trying to start a new gang inside the prison.

Captain Joel Lytle with The New Mexico Corrections Department said, "Honestly, all they're trying to do is get over on us. You know, they're trying to get over the system."

Santa Fe Prison officials said that the imates will often learn the language before they get to prison and then teach it to other imates.
