Dear Gary,

        As per this second question, you may wish to review William R. Fowler's work titled The Cultural Evolution of Ancient Nahua Civilizations: The Pipil-Nicarao of Central America (1989, Oklahoma).  His work, and that of scholars such as John Fox make
clear that central Mexican and Gulf Coast populations (such as those identified with descendant populations such as the Quiche) migrated into Central America at various points in Mesoamerican "prehistory."
