A popular theory was that these tribes once lived in North America north of Mexico and built mounds. In 1883, research by the Bureau of Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution provided the evidence that mounds were built by the ancestors of local Indians and not by Toltecs and Aztecs from Mexico. **** The original settlers of Mesoamerica were the Olmecas, dating them from about 1200 B.C. until about 200 A.D., and were the mother tribe to all Mexican Indians and Mexico's first established culture, as well as the Mayan. It is claimed that this culture was particularly mysterious, since little is known about its origin, political structure, or reason for their appearance or disappearance. In addition, there followed the Teotihuacan, of which Quetzalcoatl is supposed to have been; then the Maya, also from around 1200 B.C. to 1400 A.D.; the Toltecas, 950 A.D. to 1300 A.D., having built one of Mexico's most impressive cities--Tula, later defeating the Maya in battle; and finally, the Aztecas, 1345 A.D. to 1521 A.D., when the Spanish arrived.
