They are called Hutterite. All members were similar clothing and all money, food, and personal possessions are shared. They live in a colony. The man who starts the colony remains the leader for life.
He may be fair and benevolent, or he may choose to treat some members better than others. The author enjoyed living in the colony and was quite shocked when her ill-treated father chose to take the family and move out into the world. He had a wife and 7 children and very little education or English language skills. The author returns to the colony to ponder her roots and takes her young son along. She embraces the experiences and traditions which shaped her early life.
She still considers herself Hut terite even though she prefers to live in the modern world. Read full review. Skip to main content. About this product. New other.

This religious community was an idyllic place for a growing young girl, filled with adventure, strong bonds of friendship, rich delicious food, and a deep sense of belonging. But for her parents, it had become a community teeming with tension and conflict. At age 15 a Hutterite is considered an adult.
She would have begun to experience the pressure to conform, the restrictions on personality, and the general injustice and negative atmosphere. Her parents were used, treated unfairly, and oppressed by the leadership in the colony. The general populous has been purposely kept in the dark of the inner workings within a Hutterite Colony.
For those who have heard and would take interest let it be known that the Hutterites grossly misrepresent themselves as zealous followers of Jesus Christ. What does that mean to her?
Does she have her own vehicle or vehicles and have her own house? Does she have a career of her own choice? Does she make her own personal money and get to spend it the way she wants?
Does she raise her child the way she desires? If she does these things then she is not a Hutterite! Does her fantasy colony demand that she butcher chickens?
Does she wear a homemade dress and headcovering? Does she go to a Hutterite church every day? Does she speak hutterish fluently? Was she baptized as a Hutterite?
Does she have her own bank account? Did the Hutterites give her permission to write a book and do the proceeds for the sale of her book go to her Hutterite colony? If she would be permitted to join a Hutterite colony she would be stripped of all her rights and freedoms. Yet she turns around and tells us to live as a Hutterite is positive. I most certainly will not condone the first book as written in truth.
As far as I know the stories are not in error but the conclusions drawn from the book are fallacy. Notify me when new comments are posted.
