Muisca meaning of Pesca:
"the / E / in PESQA, derived from ZHYPABA PASQA, relates to a group of nouns that can be translated as 'strength', 'the enclosure', or 'the domain of ZHYPABA PASQA (father)'.
In this case, strength does not refer to the muscular strength of someone but as a 'fortified domain'. However, PESQA has no physical fortification walls so 'domain' is more accurate."
