Alliance with the Lamanites
Lost Lamanite Troops
One day, Lamanites soldiers show up—they had been sent to find the people of Limhi, who had escaped.
The priests persuade the Lamanites not to exterminate them.
The Lamanites and priests become allies.
The Lamanites and the priests set out together to find the land of Nephi, their home.
In their attempts to find the land of Nephi, they stumble upon the people of Alma in the land of Helam.
Alma in Helam
The Lamanites meet Alma who makes a deal with them: directions back to the land of Nephi in exchange for their lives and liberty.
After Alma tells them how to get back the land of Nephi, the Lamanites go back on their word, and begin to take over Helam by force.
Those Lamanites not charged with guarding Helam go back to the land of Nephi, following directions given by Alma.
The king of the Lamanites grants Amulon, the priest, kingship over Helam.
Amulon and the priests are made teachers over the Lamanite people, and are each assigned to Lamanite cities to teach them the Nephite language.
The Lamanite society thrives in a godless and violent manner.
Amulon enslaves Alma and all the inhabitants of Helam.
