I think they landed around Florida and moved north. The narrow neck is
Niagara. The Hopewell mound builders fit the description and building of
the Book of Mormon. Not to mention the ample writings of Joseph Smith about
them being in North America. I do however think the Lamanites – after they
split off – probably spread all over and went south. Notice all the horse
bones discovered were from North American locations. There is also a 25-50%
DNA match with the Ojibwa Indians, around the great lakes, and middle
eastern descent. There’s isn’t a single scripture in the Book of Mormon
that says the temples were built out of stone. They all say fine carved
wood. Do some research on the Hopewell mound builders and those cultures.
It’s Tyler Livingston and if I recall this was in Syracuse UT or somewhere
in the Roy area. Great information though! I especially like the
Mesoamerican insights. Some of my favorites are the Chilam Balam of
Chumayel, athe a works of Ixtlilxochitl, The Giron-Gagal Tapestry, the
Annals of the Cakchiquels and of course insights from the Popul Vuh.
Can you give us any information like: who is the speaker? when did this
take place? where did this take place?

impossible for Joseph Smith to have known.
In Belize a site has the name of Lamanai and dates back to 100 BC according
to Archiologists. In the B of M is king Lamoni of about the same era.
Hermounts refers to a part of the wilderness in Alma 2:37 – “they had
reached the wilderness, which was called Hermounts; and it was that part of
the wilderness which was infested by wild and ravenous beasts.” First,
Uxpanapa-Chimalapa continues to be home to wild animals that can aptly be
described as “wild and ravenous beasts.” Further, Uxpanapa-Chimalapa is an
integral part of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. According to Meleseo Ortega
Martinez, the word Tehuantepec is derived from the Nahuatl words tecuani
and tepec. Tecuani reflects the meaning of “wild beast,” and tepec
translates as “hill.” And according to the Nahuatl dictionary, tecuani also
means “man-eating beast.” Thus, the composite outcome reflects the meaning
of “hill of the fierce beasts” or “wilderness of wild beasts.”4 According
to Lawrence L. Poulsen:
The almost exact correlation in meaning for Tehuantepec and Hermounts
suggests that the wilderness of Tehuantepec is an ideal candidate for the
Book of Mormon wilderness of Hermounts. A line drawn from this wilderness
to the headwaters of the Grijalva River intersects with the Grijalva River
near the ruins of Santa Rosa and never comes near the Usumacinta River
except at its headwaters. The probable identification of Tehuantepec with
Hermounts gives strong support to [the] identification of the Grijalva
River as the Book of Mormon river Sidon.5
Pretty random that a farm boy made up a name that over 70 years later was
understood to make sense in Chorti maya language and have the same meaning.
Three Mayan Glyphs and 3 Hebrew letters of the alphabet are similar.
The sound in Mayan is Lamat Hebrew Lamad.
at min 22:15 you claim that Mitla is translated to mean “place desolation”
in Nahutatl. do you have a reference? .. i found this: The name Mitla or
Mictlan is of Nahuatl origin and means “Place of the Dead” or “Inframundo”.
In Zapotec it is called “Lyobaa”, which means “Burial Place”, and in Mexico
it became known as Mictlan, “Place of the Dead” which is shortened in
Spanish to Mitla.
http://www.delange.org/Mitla/Mitla.htm But it translates differently
according to the link
Carol I agree it would be helpful to know the name of the speaker. I’m
going to guess that it’s Barry Robert Bickmore because of his recently
published book Restoring the Ancient Church.
