The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is donating $2 million to the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City to help Native American Indian tribes learn more about their ancestral roots.

Elder Kyle S. McKay of the Seventy and several Native American Church members presented the gift during a reception at the museum on Sunday, October 17, 2021.

The museum, which honors many Native American Indian Tribes, will use the gift to build a FamilySearch center and fill other needs. The center will include digital interactive exhibits for Native American families. Many will be able to learn more at FamilySearch.org. FamilySearch is the Church’s nonprofit genealogy arm.
