Utah is largely a dry, inhospitable and barren landscape, yet it has become a home for a steadfast people who have created a distinctive culture. As early as around 400, present-day Utah was inhabited by the Anasazi and Pueblo Indians. Their society disintegrated long before the arrival of Spanish explorers in the 18th century, but their rock villages and pottery and rock paintings have been preserved. Then the Navajo and members of the Ute tribe settled here, many of whom still live here.

In 1848, the United States took over the area from Mexico. As early as 1847, Mormons began to settle in Utah under the leadership of religious leader Brigham Young (1801-77). These members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been forced to flee the persecution caused by their unconventional practices, especially polygamy. Their mission was to transform the desert landscape of the Great Salt Lake into a paradise. Thanks to continuous work and missionary zeal, large parts of the country were irrigated and Young’s vision was successfully completed after less than 15 years.

The local Indian population was not directly oppressed, but suffered from dwindling livelihoods. Subsequent conflicts led to his relocation to reservations. In the late 1990s, the Mormons created a stable and strong community, relying mainly on small agricultural cooperatives. The United States Congress repeatedly rejected Mormon requests to establish a state until 1896, when polygamy was officially rejected and the Mormon Church relinquished its political status. However, its dominant role in society persisted and the tradition of high work ethic and mutual assistance was a major factor that strengthened Utah’s economic development.

Even today, Mormon influence in society is evident, but more liberal conditions allow, for example, the admission of blacks as members of the church. Utah’s popular tourist centers and the prosperity of its capital, Salt Lake City, an important financial and commercial center, are living testimonies to the success of Mormon influence.
