In this paper, we describe an in-progress, free and open-source Finite-State Transducer morphological analyzer for an understudied Nahuatl variant. We discuss our general approach, some of the technical implementation details, the challenges that accompany building such a system for a low-resource language variant, the current status and performance of the system, and directions for future work.
