The Book of Mormon details the history of two groups called the Nephites and the Lamanites. The identity of the Lamanites, including especially their identity in the latter-days among Native American peoples, remains an open question which readers of the Book of Mormon grapple with. Who were the Lamanites in the Book of Mormon and who are their modern descendants? And what have latter-day prophets taught on this matter?
