The Four Corners Area has a large number of Mormons; many in the area maintain close ties with Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah; most people realize Utah is heavily Mormon.  It has been suggested that many business in the area are run by Mormons who tend to hire Mormons, keeping others out of the loop. There are certain companies in the area well known to be “Mormon.”   Some are considered “Jack Mormon” - not as conventional or conservative.  It also should be suggested that ties like this may run through various part of the city, county and state governments.  Consider the possibility that Mormon culture running through a city government, with its possible background of abuse and hidden problems may keep the government from certain progressive approaches in the way of health/environment/social services/animal rights.  Also be aware that many Mormons have already experienced discrimination and are leery and self-protective, which may create a type of secrecy and desire to stay out of direct view.  If a person works in one department under scrutiny and belongs to any of the organized religions in the area with a particularly strong group identity, pay attention to the various links and channels that may be connected when you do any form of investigation or effort at making big changes, especially if you are from out of the area.  Some of the best help can come from outside of the area, but these people may be out of touch with the subtle layers of interconnectivity in the area to be able to adequately break through the cultural barriers to get at the facts of misconduct, negligence and abuse.  This applies to any of the strongly linked groups in the area coordinated through family ties, religion, language and culture.  Whether you are investigating problems with the environment or sexual abuse, or anything else, be aware of these subtle undercurrents running throughout not only this area, but any area.
