At the time of the Mormon settlement in Utah, the Ute tribe was extremely powerful. While they did have some conflicts with the Utes, for the most part they got along. The Utes helped to defend the Mormons against other tribes and even other gorups of white settlers. They also helped Mormons to know how to survive in the harsh climate. In return, the Mormons shared their food with the Utes. Although many Mormons were suspiscious of the Utes, they understood that it was cheaper and more practical to feed them than to fight them.
