According to the Book of Mormon, the Anti-Nephi-Lehies were a group of people that made a covenant that they would not participate in war and buried their weapons. The plural form of the name, Anti-Nephi-Lehies, was taken on by Lamanite Christian converts. Later, they were called Amonites to honor the primary missionary of their conversion. Anti-Nephi-Lehies differed from other Book of Mormon people in that they were pacificts as a reaction to their previous warlike behavior. Anti-Lehi-Nephies preferred death over killing in self-defense.
