The first civilization of the Mesoamerica was the Olmec civilization. The Olmec were the first complex civilization to develop. This was  in the central and north America and developed in about 1200BC. They inhabited the gulf coast region of Veracruz . The main sites of the Olmec include San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán, La Venta, and Tres Zapotes. Father  south the Aztec would develop. But the Mayans were controlling what is now Mexican states of Chiapas, Tabasco, and most of the Yucatan. Their empire stretched through northern Central America, including Guatemala, El Salvador, western Honduras, and Belize.

The different groups living in Mesoamerica are the Aztec , the Maya, the Mixtec, the Olmec, the Toltec, the Zapotec, and the ancient inhabitants of Teotihuacan, though many other complex cultures also thrived in the area (including the Pipil, Huastecs, and Totonacs. MesoAmerica is located is what is called middle America. But also extends  from south-central Mexico southeastward to include the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, the Yucatán Peninsula, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, and the Pacific coast of Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica down to the Gulf of Nicoya.

The Olmec, Maya, and Aztecs are the three well known that became great civilizations in Mesoamerica. The Maya is a Mesoamerican civilization, noted for Maya script, the only known fully developed writing system of the pre-Columbian Americas, as well as for its art, architecture, and mathematical and astronomical systems. As for the magic part, they were praying to their gods. Which they were told that they need to have sacrificed. To make things like rain or maize, which is corn. But in reality it was actually magic. Muggles just didn’t understand it and was confusing it with mythology. But also the Mayans had a calendar. Which muggles thought that it was predicting the end of the world. As the Mesoamericas had a thing with the meaning of numbers. This was actually Arithmancy.

One by one, the Classic cities in the southern lowlands were abandoned, and by A.D. 900, Maya civilization in that region had collapsed. The reason for this mysterious decline is unknown, though scholars have developed several competing theories. Although the Mayan people never entirely disappeared their descendants still live across Central America—dozens of core urban areas in the lowlands of the Yucatan peninsula, such as Tikal, went from bustling cities to abandon ruins over the course of roughly a hundred year.

I don’t believe that this civilization ended or even disappeared. I believe that it just has to evolve with time. Adapting to whatever was thrown at them. As everything was changing, they had to move with time. Muggles will believe tell you that this ended. But I think in South America, they are still there. Maybe no longer practicing what they did in the Mesoamerica time period. But they are still using their magic.
