The year is 1904. In Payson, Utah – Mormon settlers who had survived the Black Hawk War held a reunion to commemorate the violent struggle between Mormon settlers and local factions of the Ute, Paiute, and Navajo tribes, led by Ute Chief Black Hawk.

Tensions between Mormon settlers and local tribes had been escalating for years. The conflict began with the thefts of some Mormon cattle by a group of Indians. A group of settlers met with local Indians to settle the dispute. During the proceedings, a settler yanked an Indian from his horse. Black Hawk swore revenge – and the war, confined primarily to cattle raids, was on. The height of the conflict were the years 1865-67, and by 1868, a peace treaty was signed.
