CLAIM ONE  
  No experts would claim in 1830 that the
Indians were not native to this land.
Those who felt there had been migrations
believed that people walked across the top
of the continent — Siberia, Bering Straits,
Alaska, etc. No one would claim multiple
migrations coming by sea. ( see the Title Page of the Book of Mormon )
 
  Goodbye, United States !  
     
  The first claim is that this continent was
peopled by two main groups in ancient
times ; both came by sea. However, no
claim is made that they were the only
groups to come to this continent.
( see 2nd Nephi 1:5-7 )
 
     
  Looks like we ‛re not the first ones
to be lead to the Promised Land.
 
     
  “ Authorities generally agree that there were at least two major separate and distinct migrations from Asia to the new world by sea : the Archaic, about
4,000 years ago . . . and later the Maya -Toltec [ around 600 B.C. ].” 1
