Part I The Record of Moroni-Mor-Honayah; The Son of Mormon

Greetings all my relations,

It’s a good day and with great honor, I introduce to you The Record of Mor-Honayah.

We are accustomed  to hearing Mor-Honayah’s name pronounced as Moroni, as he was called in the Land Southward…

Moroni is his Nephite Name, but Moroni’s family had long ago left the Land Southward, with grandfather Hagoth’s ships that traveled Northward and beyond as stated in the;

Nemenhah Constitution

(Formerly the Numi’Pu TsuPehli Chophunsh, and Nemenhah Band and Native

American Traditional Organization, consecutively.
The name has been modified from time to time in order to address Core Principles)
An Indigenous Traditional Organization and Convocation of
Medicine Men and Medicine Women and Ministers of the
Native American Church of Nemenhah
(An Independent Branch of the Native American Church with Affiliation and Recognition
from the  Oklevueha  Lakota Sioux  Nation  Native American Church of Wounded Knee and
Rosebud, as well as Sundance Chiefs and Holy Persons of the Mandan/Hidatsa, Holy
Persons of the Tlingit,  and of Hawaii and Peru)
We Nemenhah,
In Great Council, beginning in 2002 and continuously to the present, by Original
Constitution and as amended and revised to present, by the Unanimous Voice of the First
General Mother’ s Council, and subsequently, the Delegates of the Annual Great Councils of
the Nemenhah, do make this;
Declaration of Good Conscience and Practice,
Constitution, and Establishment of the Nemenhah.
Being a restoration of a Pre-Colonial and Pre-Conquest Nomadic Indigenous People who
call themselves “Nemenhah” and who  inhabited parts of Central America, North America,
the Pacific Islands, Japan, Korea, China and Tibet anciently, and which left evidence defining
its periodic occupation of these Traditional Territories in writings and records, religiously
guarded in order that they might be brought into the light in a day of futurity, so that the
ancient sacred ways of the Nemenhah  might be restored, beginning in this State of Utah, in
the United States of America, and spreading from there as far as the wind may carry the
message, and for as long as the trees grow and the rivers flow.
We Walk In A Sacred Manner, We Talk In A Sacred Manner.
And We Make a Beginning of Our Speaking.

OFFICIAL DOCUMENT: Nemenhah Constitution

We discover much more information in the Nemenhah family library, than we have been given in Moroni’s Father’s book called The Book of Mormon.

That little book was, and is, the test for the Gentiles and the LDS Church, to see if they will help the Native Americans, remnants of Lehi, to build Zion and become Nemenhah;

(The People of God having all things in common) again in The Americas…)

The Nemenhah Record is the Model for the remnant of Father Lehi’s children to use,here in America..

The Land Northward;

The Nemenhah, they had long ago adopted the ways and customs of The Ammonites; originally known as The Anti-Nephi-Lehies…



Captain Moroni;

Angel Moroni;

The Angel, in charge of The Library at Cumorah;

The Book of Mormon- The Nephite Record; The Great Nephite Civilization that was completly destroyed abt 400-431A.D.

Moroni speaks,

The Book of Mormon Chapter 9: 30-37

Moroni calls upon those who do not believe in Christ to repent—He proclaims a God of miracles, who gives revelations and pours out gifts and signs upon the faithful—Miracles cease because of unbelief—Signs follow those who believe—Men are exhorted to be wise and keep the commandments. About A.D. 401–421.

30 Behold, I speak unto you as though I spake from the dead; for I know that ye shall have my words.

 31 Condemn me not because of mine imperfection, neither my father, because of his imperfection, neither them who have written before him; but rather give thanks unto God that he hath made manifest unto you our imperfections, that ye may learn to be more wise than we have been.

 32 And now, behold, we have written this record according to our knowledge, in the characters which are called among us the reformed Egyptian, being handed down and altered by us, according to our manner of speech.

 33 And if our plates had been sufficiently large we should have written in Hebrew; but the Hebrew hath been altered by us also; and if we could have written in Hebrew, behold, ye would have had no imperfection in our record.

 34 But the Lord knoweth the things which we have written, and also that none other people knoweth our language; and because that none other people knoweth our language, therefore he hath prepared means for the interpretation thereof.

 35 And these things are written that we may rid our garments of the blood of our brethren, who have dwindled in unbelief.

 36 And behold, these things which we have desired concerning our brethren, yea, even their restoration to the knowledge of Christ, are according to the prayers of all the saints who have dwelt in the land.

 37 And may the Lord Jesus Christ grant that their prayers may be answered according to their faith; and may God the Father remember the covenant which he hath made with the house of Israel; and may he bless them forever, through faith on the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Known For:
Mor-Honayah/Moroni wrote “The Record of Mor-Honayah” in the Mentinah Archives. He went down to the Land Southward to join his father, Mormon, in the fight.

It is interesting. Either Mormon came to the Land Northward for a time to have a son, or he sent his son to the Land Northward and then later his son returned to him.} He held his father on the battle field as he died. Moroni was the last prophet and commander of the Nephite army.

He gathered the survivors of that great war and founded the city of Elak Kowat where he encouraged all the survivors live.

He became the High Priest of Mentinah after Heinmet.

He was released from that position to become the High Priest of Elak-Kowat.

When he heard the rumors his successor had locked the doors of the High Place in Mentinah, he was the one who confronted the usurper.

He was part of the traveling council who went throughout the lands of the Nemenhah to reunify the people.

He was the one who finished his father’s record and deposited it in Cumorah.

{According to Joseph Smith, Moroni (Mor-Honayah) was the angel who visited him in his room and on the Hill Cumorah. Joseph was instructed by Moroni and then received the Gold Plates of the Book of Mormon from him.

After the translation of that Nephite record;

Joseph returned those plates back to Moroni.

Moroni also was present when the three witnesses of the Book of Mormon saw, held and flipped through the pages of, The gold plates.

After the translation of that ancient Nephite record, Joseph returned those plates back to Moroni.

Chapter One

1) I am Mor-Honayah, the same that was called by the Nephites, Moroni.

My father was that same Mormon who served as captain of the armies of the Nephites, as were, and I too did serve as their captain for but a brief time.

And the account of my service unto the Nephites and the terrible end to which they eventually fell I have written in another book and I have hid it up within the earth even as I was commanded to do.

2) And I have taken up my abode among the Nemenhah.

For I am descended from Nephi and also from Hagoth.

Wherefore, I have returned again unto my own people.

3) And I write in this book concerning all my doings among the people of the Land Northward.

I especially wish to give account of Heinmet, who was high priest of Mentinah before I returned.

Yea, I wish to give tribute to him.

4) Heinmet was the son of Pa Natan and Ishimhah and just as his mother did learn and become great listening at the feet of the high priests of Mentinah, so then also did her son.

Yea, Heinmet was a man great in wisdom and in zeal for the ways of the Lord, even from his youth.

And behold, the Lord was with him and He did walk with Heinmet upon the Way.

5) And Heinmet gained favor with the Lord and also with the people of Mentinah, insomuch that the Council made him high priest of the city.

And he did fill the seat with justice and equity.

Yea, I must say that, by all accounts, he administered his calling in perfection.

6) Now, there came in upon the Nemenhah in all regions of the Land Northward a great fear and dread that the same that was transpiring in the Land Southward might also begin to take place in the lands of the Nemenhah.

And none saw this more clearly than Heinmet.

Wherefore, he did call a Great Council of the Peli of the thirteen principle cities and they met in the city of Wit Chit Tim.

7) And this city was on the southern-most border of the lands of the Nemenhah, for they had long abandoned the region round about the great gulf in the south unto the people of the Land Southward who had colonized and built settlements there.

But Wit Chit Tim was in the plains along the northern borders of the gulf region.

And it was this city in which my family resided.

8) In this Great Council, Heinmet gave counsel to all the Peli of the principle cities that they should make preparation for war, which was surely to come out of the Land Southward.

It was his opinion that every city ought to build earthworks such as those built by that Moroni of old who protected the Nephites from the Lamanites.

Wherefore, it was decided by the Council that each of the principle cities would take counsel among themselves and determine the best defenses that could be devised for their situation.

9) And the city of Wit Chit Tim cast up earth in a great ring around the city.

And without this ring, they caused timber battlements to be built.

Within the ring of earth, they caused pits and moats to be dug.

And within this they caused more timber battlements to be built.

And to enter into the city, one had to pass through a narrow gate in the outer battlement and turn and proceed a great distance to reach the gate in the earthen ring.

Having passed the second gate, to continue into the city, one was then required to proceed
carefully around the pits and over the moats.

Then, when all the pits and moats were passed, one entered the city through a gate in the inner battlement.

And this was devised so that any enemy would be forced to expose themselves to battle on all sides in order to take the city.

10) Now, to build such a defense required that the Nemenhah gather from all the region round about in order to provide the labor necessary.

And the people left their villages and their settlements from the region round about

Wit Chit Tim, and they lived in one great settlement outside the city.

11) And this is part of the great evil which Heinmet lay upon himself, that the people were constrained to leave their farms and their homes in order to come ingreat numbers to build up the strong places.

For, it had always been the custom among the Nemenhah to allow no city to grow larger in population than between one or two hundred families.

12) Yea, even the great cities of Mentinah and Corianton had no greater population, for, it was believed that the land could not bear any more and that the people only cooperated well in such numbers.

Wherefore, whenever populations of a certain city grew to above that which was considered good stewardship of the land, a new settlement was begun a goodly distance from the city.

And this was the manner in which the Nemenhah filled the whole land with people, but still did not overtax the land upon which their people relied.

13) But behold, because of the threat and the fear of war;

The Great Council of Wit Chit Tim encouraged the people to discard that which had served them for so many generations.

Yea, they began to gather very large populations indeed, in order that they might speedily complete the work of defense.

14) And this is not all.

The Council encouraged the building of a great army for the defense of the people in
the southern borders of the land. And in order to provision it, the cities were asked to produce more and to send it to the army.

15) Now, the cities were built around a certain population and a certain need, and the inhabitants were accustomed to producing according to that need.

And behold, the need was visible to all and required no accounting or verification.

Wherefore, the people were content to have all things in common and to produce sufficient for their own need and a little extra for trade and to provide for the needs of their neighbors and any sojourners in the land.

16) But, when there came a need to provision thousands of men in the field, men who worked for the security of the nation but not for their own upkeep, the cities were required to increase their production to meet that need.

Now, this was exceedingly difficult to do, for each city was built such and founded such that
they need not produce above the land’s ability to bear it.

And this had always been a dictum of the people and a byword.

17) But when cities must increase their population in order to build defenses, they must support that added populace.

This was impossible because of the manner in which the cities were organized and laid out.

Wherefore, great tracts of land round about the cities had to be opened up for production and this was not possible in most cases.

18) The other cities of the Nemenhah were asked to produce more and to distribute less to its citizens, the surplus being made available to the great cities of defense and to support the workers in the defense projects.

And this became a great drag on the other cities.

19) In addition to this, a population of men at arms was quickly built up which was vastly greater than the population of any of the cities of the Nemenhah.

This constituted a great, moving city in and of itself.

What is more, this moving city was a destroyer of land and a consumer of surplus, to the extent that to quarter the army in any one place became a great burden and a curse to any city.

20) This was entirely foreign to the customs of the people and many cities, though they did not actually rebel against the Great Council, they found it difficult to complywith its decisions.

Because of this, there began to be some division in the land, for some cities were built in regions with greater capacity than others.

These cities became more important to the work of defense than others and they began to exalt themselves above their neighbors.

21) Wherefore, during this period it cannot be said that the Nemenhah had all things in common.

And we cannot say that they were all of one heart and one mind, for differences and some strife did exist among them.

And it is this to which Heinmet took responsibility later in his life and he upbraided himself.

22) And we cannot sit in judgment of Heinmet and the other Peli who formed the Great Council.

Was the threat not real?

Was the war not at our doors?

I say unto you, It was.

I know this, for I did also lead the Nephites into battle, even down to their last destruction.

I know that the war did come into the Land Northward just as Heinmet feared and prophesied.

Behold, he laid down the seat of high priest before the battle spread up into the lands of the Nemenhah, but I prosecuted the war even unto the end.

And I held my father as he died upon the field.

And did that not take place well up into the Land Northward?

I say unto you, It did.

23) We must not judge Heinmet as he did judge himself.

For, his vision was correct and his prophecy was fulfilled.

But, the course that he and the Council decided upon was reactionary and did serve to
undermine the foundation of all that was Nemenhah.

24) But behold, Heinmet did give up the seat of high priestof Mentinah and, in the last few years of his life, he did travel from one Council to another recommending to them that they disband their armies and break down their battlements.

And many of the cities that were farther to the North and the West did follow his instruction.

And it was because of his instruction that the great army that the Nemenhah had built up and maintained for so many years was disbanded.

25) And those men who had been trained in the work of war did train up others within their own communities against the need for any future muster.

But behold, never again in my lifetime did the Nemenhah raise a
great army.

26) And Heinmet also taught the Councils that the people ought to watch carefully the progress of the war as it made its way into the Land Northward so that they might retreat before it.

27) Now this was a good strategy.

For the war did ravage the Land Southward and as the Nephites were driven by the Lamanites and the Gadiantonhem they did move out of the Land Southward up into the gulf region of the Land Northward.

Yea, even as my father strove with the Nephites, they did move ever northward, even until the last battle, which was far to the north and along the eastern sea.

(The Hill Cumorah)

28) But the Nemenhah watched from a distance and were able to move their people out of the way of the war and were not discovered by the combatants. Behold, it is a wonder to me that the Nemenhah were so proficient at removing their populations inland and away from the approaching armies.

For, although my father and I knew of their cities and settlements that ought to have lain directly in our path, we did not encounter any people in our march.

Behold, we did encounter earthen works and abandoned towns and settlements, but we did not see even one of the Nemenhah, and neither did our enemy.

29) And this was because of the great counsel that Heinmet gave unto the people, that they should move themselves before the approaching hosts and not make themselves known unto them.

Behold, they were not discovered and they remained free from the work of death into which we had thrust ourselves.

30) Wherefore, judge now the wisdom and the foresight of Heinmet.

For, I do believe that he upbraided himself well; for all that, he had nearly destroyed the Nemenhah way of life and even the foundations of Zion in the land.

But I also believe that he did judge himself too much.

For his counsels, after he had begun to work among all the Nemenhah, were good and did save the nation.

31) Yea, it must be admitted that his policy of retreating before the approaching hosts of the Nephites and the Lamanites was very effective.

For both armies were very much concerned with the day’s fighting and not very much interested in the country round about.

And almost they did believe that the land was empty of inhabitants.

Wherefore, all the Nephites and the Lamanites did concern themselves only with that which was necessary to maintain their great armies. And, since the few people they did happen to find in the land had nothing with which they esteemed of any value to the sustaining of their armies, they left them entirely to themselves.

32) This was a great blessing unto the Nemenhah because it afforded them more opportunity to remove themselves from before them, a thing that might havebeen made more difficult had the armies paid much attention to them.

33) And all the Nephites of the gulf region became caught up in the war. Yea, and they went into the armies: man, woman and child.

And the women and children did follow the trains, serving the needs of the army,
leaving their cities and their towns desolate.

34) And they took with them all their belongings.

Yea, they carried with them in the trains all their precious things.

Wherefore, these things were the prize of the Lamanites and the Gadiantonhem who led them.

And they were also the prize of the wicked among the Nephites, for there were many Gadiantonhem among them also.

And it is easy, then, to see how both armies, because of their lust for riches and for the
shedding of blood, could so completely ignore the existence of even a greater host of people than they comprised.

Yea, they could see only themselves and this was enough to satisfy all.

35) And the Nemenhah evacuated the settlements and cities before the armies of the Nephites and the Lamanites knew not of their existence.

Wherefore, only those directly in the path of the war were discovered by either host, and these they found empty of spoil.

But there was no time at all to ponder over the ghostly attitude of these cities, for they were ever pressed for the necessity of the war and they could not stay overlong in an unprofitable region.

36) And the hosts consumed all before them. And so great were the hosts that much country that might have been employed industriously and with providence was trampled into unserviceable mud.

37) Can you imagine the sight? Can you imagine millions of men with their women and children, and all their baggage, traveling through unknown territory?

Can you imagine the desolation simply in the necessity of making their cook fires?

Can you imagine the stench they left behind them from the waste of their bodies?

Then, I would ask you, can you imagine the wasteland created by the great battles that took place and the necessity of burning the bodies of the fallen?

38) If you can, then you can imagine the effect that so great a war has upon any land.

Such was the destruction in the gulf region and along the eastern sea as the Nephites battled to destroy themselves and all before them.

Yea, if you can, then you can envision the fruits of the great preparations to which the
Nephites went in order to defend themselves against their enemies.

Their defense became their ruination and they went from the shedding of blood to the shedding of blood.

39) So shall be the effect of all great bodies of men and women who take the field together.

And had the Nemenhah rallied to the cause of the Nephites or the Lamanites, for the Nemenhah might have claimed them both, they should have been caught up in a like destruction.

Therefore, I exhort you once again:

Let not any man judge the counsels and teachings of Heinmet, for they were just.

And behold, before he died he did recuperate his honor by the great counsel where with he did save the Nemenhah.
