Pretty much anywhere in the world

Where are most mormans located?

Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) live outside of the United States. About 40% of Mormons live in the US, and 60% live outside of the US scattered in nearly every nation. The Church is growing most quickly in Africa and Central and South America; membership remains steady in Asia and Europe; and is sparse but exists in the Middle East.

Is Salt Lake City where most American Mormons live?

I live in salt lake and would say it has the largest concentration of mormans as percentage of total population. But most mormans in the US live out of slc. Out of utah in fact. ---------------- No, definately not. While Salt Lake City is the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church), most American Mormons live outside of Utah. (There are 6,060,000 baptized Mormons in the United States, and 1,884,000 of those live in Utah.) So, less than 1/3 of American Mormons live in Utah. Most Mormons in Utah live outside of Salt Lake City. The city itself is actually quite liberal and diverse, and the homes are small and expensive compared to the rest of the state. The suburbs surrounding Salt Lake City are where the majority of Mormons in Utah live. Some of the suburbs are more than 90% Mormon. About 80,000 of the 6,060,000 American Mormons live in Salt Lake City, which is just over 1.3%.

Do Mormons pledge allegiance to the church before the US?

Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) live outside the United States. They do not pledge allegiance to the US because they are not US citizens. Mormons believe in honoring their country, wherever they live. Within Mormonism, honoring or 'pledging allegiance' to your country is a part of pledging allegiance to your religion, since Mormons are expected to "be subject to kings, presidents, rulers and magistrates in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law."

How did the arrival of the Mormons effect the U tes?

The Mormon pioneers and the Utes got along quite well. Of course there were a few incidents but for the most part the Utes recognized that the Mormons were in a similar situation with most Native American groups - kicked out of their homes by the US government and in need of a safe place to live. Because of this they were usually quite welcoming and helpful to the Mormons.
