Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is a study of the Mormon colonization of the Little Colorado River Basin in northeastern Arizona. The author looks at the different settlements that were established there and considers why some survived and were more successful than others. The usual Mormon collective practice of sharing of resources through cooperatives and joint enterprises did not necessarily guarantee success because of the small population of some of the settlements and the severe ecological conditions of some regions. Rather, it was specifically tithing and the connection to the wider economy and labor market that provided the funds and flexibility for communities to pass through difficult times.
