Only They Succeeded

After the Church was firmly established in the Salt Lake Valley, they provided farms for the natives with the idea of teaching the natives how to grow their own food. In all but one case this experiment failed. Which tribe was the only tribe to develop a good farm for many decades?
a.                  Shoshone
b.                  Ute
c.                   Piute
d.                  Navajo
Yesterday’s answer:
b.   The Brook Kendron          
The first night that the Saints left Nauvoo for the west they camped at Sugar Creek, Iowa. What did the Saints rename this creek?
The Brook Kedron.
This was named after the brook that flowed through the Kedron Valley just beyond the east wall of the ancient city of Jerusalem.
