Random quote: "Mes, lietuviai, esam mįslinga tauta. Mes vis dar savo dvasioje tebesiblaškom tarp buvusių valdovų imperinės pilies ant Gedimino kalno ir susmegusios į žemę vargdienio lūšnos, vis dar nedrįsdami praverti langų ir mesti drąsų žvilgsnį į Lietuvos rytojaus viziją." Vytautas Alantas (1902 - 1990)

The chronicles are reporting only about nadruvian and skalvian settlers around 1300 - 1400 in that area that became a wilderness.  

I think the main argument for Scalvian and Nadruvian "Lithuanianess" is absence of clearly western baltic toponymics in the area, unlike yotvingian lands that were turned into wilderness as well, many place names survived, like my earlier mentioned Ingavangis, Leipalingis, Veisejai, Kirsna etc (kirsnan in Prussian means black).
