LDS Church's $2 Million Dollar Donation To First Americans Museum GIVEN BACK?

On this episode of Mormonish, Rebecca and Landon delve into an interesting mystery involving a $2,000,000 donation given by the LDS church to the First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The donation was to be used to build a Family History Center in the museum. We recently learned that the Family History Center was never built and we put our sleuthing skills to the test as we try to find out more about the donation, it's purpose, why the Family History Center was not build, and what eventually happened to the $2M donation.

We got many answers but also ended up with more questions. But it was a very interesting journey.
