        Kimichtzine! I actually found out after writing this how to go about it.

        Pohpolhuia means to forgive

        So to apologize one could say ‘xinechquipohpolhui!’
        forgive me for that

        And forgive me for taking so long to respond, nocniuh. Ma cualli ohtli, ihuan ma tipahtinemi. 😀
