Heartland Tours

What is a Heartland Tour?

These tours take guests to see historical sites and evidence believed to be connected to the Book of Mormon. Uniquely, these sites provide massive strides of confirmation to the world about ancient American civilization. Additionally, these tours will cover various sites of the Restoration on their pathway. Discover how the United States has been a part of the Covenant of the Promised Land on our new “Sacred Histories: American Covenant” tour.

What does it mean to be a "Heartlander?"

As to the geography of the Book of Mormon people, cities, and events, there are two main theories. The first theory is that the geography of the Book of Mormon takes place in Central/South America. This Meso-American style and belief is a popular theory for who are the descendents of the ancient Lamanites. However, in the second main theory, it is believed that North America is the Land of Promise. 

The plates of the Book of Mormon were found in upper New York, therefore it is reasonable to believe the geography of those events is nearby. Those who believe in the second main theory, that the Book of Mormon geography is the modern-day United States, have earned themselves the title of “Heartlanders.”
