The purpose of this video is to explore the intellectual and theological discourse about Indian origins in the New World that preceded Joseph Smith’s dictation of the Book of Mormon in 1829 and how the Book of Mormon may have participated in that discussion.
This video is based on chapter 3 of Dan Vogel, Indian Origins and the Book of Mormon: Religious Solutions from Columbus to Joseph Smith (Salt Lake City: Signature Books, 1986).
"A wide range of sources used intelligently and fairly. ... A sound scholarly job."--Francis Jennings, director emeritus, D'Arcy McNickle Center for the History of the American Indian, the Newberry Library
