    Native American and European Relations

    As the Saints colonized and implanted the region with Euro-American social and cultural traditions, they also clashed with the region’s previous residents. The Mormons had not moved to a desert island, and even on their first beachheads in Salt Lake, Davis, and Weber Counties, they ran into Numics who resented their invasion. In 1847, fewer than 20,000 Native Americans lived in Utah. Already, large numbers had died since first contact with whites, principally from disease.
