Obviously, this is what is still being taught in church in many places. Why if the apologists are right? Who is it that got this idea in their heads in the first place? Arrowheads in Wyoming are Nephite and Lamanites remnants of weapons?!

As far as I know, no one in the church has said Amerindians aren't Lamanites. Church authorities have repeatedly said they are. That's not to say, however, that the Book of Mormon events did not happen in Mesoamerica. I think that's exactly where the Book of Mormon events took place. I also believe that, like the Old World, people got around in the New World. And I believe trade routes and exploratory parties were in existence in and throughout the New World.

People, by their very nature, are wanderers. And church leaders recognize that all peoples in the New World are entitled to the same blessings as the Nephites and the Lamanites.
