Durin colonial times, its name wis Pinotepa del Rey, an juist efter unthirldom, it wis cried Pinotepa del Estado. It is located at a hicht o 200 m abuin sea level in the Mixteca de la Costa region o the state.[1]

The region haes an interestin history. A heich percentage o its population is o African ancestrie. Thare are twa historical theories o hou this came aboot. The first is that durin the colonial period African slaves wur brocht tae this aurie tae wirk on the various haciendas here. The seicont theory is that these fowk are the stryndants o Africans destined for the slave trade whose ship wrecked aff the coast o Oaxaca.[2] This is the hame o a notorious bandit bi the name o Silverio Petatán an aw, who wis captured an executit in 1864. Acause o his boss-eye an colourful leid, the bandit's heid wis brocht tae the toun an put on public display for a nummer o days.[1]

The toun haes a reputation for bein roudy an full o pairties. It is ane o the few auries o Mexico wi a significant population o fowk o African strynd. It is notit for crafts such as knittit items an aw, embroidered items, an, in pairticular, knives, machetes an saddle-making.[2] It is the host toun for the UTM annual wife hunt event, whaur lanely desperate men frae neebourin municipalities come tae try an charm a spoose wi limitit Spainyie but flashy buits.
