Miitens' Mormon polygamist heritage

Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., 1831 revelation, recorded in a letter from W.W. Phelps to Brigham Young, dated August 12, 1861:

Verily, I say unto you, that the wisdom of man, in his fallen state, knoweth not the purposes and the privileges of my hold priesthood, but ye shall know when ye receive a fullness by reason of the anointing: For it is my will, that in time, ye should take unto you wives of the Lamanites and Nephites, that their posterity may become white, delightsome and just, for even now their females are more virtuous then the gentiles.

Comment: this is an intresting quote from the founder of the Mormons because it indicates Joseph Smith thought Mormons were Jewish descendants which explains his comment about gentiles.

Smith thought the Laminites or american Indians were also descendants of one of the lost tribes of Israel. 

That is a stretch and DNA analyses shows no links between native Americans and ancient Israelites.
