Mormon Migrations South Of The Border

AIR DATE: January 27, 2014

As far back as the 1890s when the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was forced to renounce polygamy, church members moved to Mexico and Canada to preserve the traditional theology. That tradition continues with new waves of church members moving into Mexico and further south into Latin America. Eva Hunter researched these groups for her writing and will present some of her research to the Las Vegas World Affairs Council.
