The Mountain Meadows massacre, interestingly enough, was a cooperative effort between Mormons and Indians who combined forces to pull a ruse on, and then slaughter, the settlers in question. However, it was not ordered by Brigham Young, whose orders were NOT to molest the setllers; those orders arrived several days after the massacre, unfortunately.
