Did Jesus visit America?

The Mormons believe that Jesus visited the American continent after his Resurrection; but, if that is the case, why is it that the Native American peoples did not appear to know about the existence of Jesus Christ when Christianity was brought to them by the explorers from the Old World?

That is a good question that you can use to stump the Mormon elders when they come knocking at your door. For more Mormon stumpers, see the tract linked below.
