This article argues that various Indian traditions and practices suggest that Jesus Christ visited the American continent, as the Book of Mormon indicates. The author points out archaeological and historical similarities between Jesus and Itzamna, the god of the Mayas, and Quetzalcoatl, the “Fair God” of the Aztecs.
