assimilation, LDS Church, language, Utah
Most accounts hold that Danes in America assimilated rapidly and eﬀectively into mainstream culture…but was that always the case? This article focuses on a small community in Utah that was home to a large proportion of Danes and other Scandinavians. A close examination of this community reveals that the assimilation process was not always as straightforward a process as we oft en hear.
