The Tohono O’odham still live on both sides of the (relatively) new border.

Doesn’t the Aztec foundational myth incorporate a southern exodus? I recall that they weren’t local to Lake Texcoco.

Last time I was in Arizona I walked around a partially-excavated Tohono O’odham site that included a court for the “Mesoamerican Ball Game,” known to the Aztecs as ulamamaztli. I persistently wonder about the meaning of that game’s distribution in Central America, and what symbolic or ritual properties it had.
