E110: The LDS Church and the Bear River Massacre

The largest massacre of Native Americans by federal troops in the history of the United States took place in Cache Valley, Idaho, and it was both invited and condoned by the Mormons settling the area. Darren Parry, author of “The Bear River Massacre: A Shoshone History,” tells the story of that day on this episode of the Sunstone Podcast. This episode comes from the 2020 Sunstone Summer Symposium.
