Response to claim: 69 - The author claims that Native Americans are, according to the Book of Mormon, descended from the lost tribes of Israel

The author(s) of Under the Banner of Heaven make(s) the following claim:

Native Americans are, according to the Book of Mormon, descended from the lost tribes of Israel.

FAIR's Response

Fact checking results: This claim is false

Book of Mormon peoples are distinct from the lost ten tribes (2 Nephi 29:13, 3 Nephi 17:4). The author again betrays his superficial grasp of LDS thought and theology.
