For the past 175 years, the Latter-day Saint Church has taught that
Native Americans and Polynesians are descended from ancient
seafaring Israelites. Recent DNA research confirms what
anthropologists have been saying for nearly as many years, that
Native Americans are originally from Siberia and Polynesians from
Southeast Asia. In the current volume, molecular biologist Simon
Southerton explains the theology and the science and how the former
is being reshaped by the latter.
In the Book of Mormon, the Jewish prophet Lehi says the
following after arriving by boat in America in 600 BCE:
Wherefore, I, Lehi, have obtained a promise, that inasmuch as
those whom the Lord God shall bring out of the land of Jerusalem
shall keep his commandments, they shall prosper upon the face of
this land; and they shall be kept from all other nations, that they
may possess this land unto themselves (2 Ne. 1:9).
