Palavras: tolteca , totem

Hi guys!
I’d like to know the origins of the words “Toltec” and “Totem”. And do u know if they are related in history: the Toltecans were the ones who invented the totems ?
Thanks very much! =D


1) From Spanish TOLTECA, from Nahuatl TOLTECATL, “people from TOLLAN”, the place now called TULA in Mexico.

2) From Ojibwa NIN-TO-TEM, “mark of my clan”.

Toltecs certainly didn’t invent totems as are used by north american indians.
