    Thank you Tania, I am glad you do. I really enjoyed this documentary on Hutterites, even though it is quite old.

    I watched the documentary when it was posted the 1st time and really enjoyed it – very educational and highly recommended. I am presently reading “I Am Hutterite” by Mary-Ann Kirkby, who spent her 1st 10 years in a Hutterite colony in Canada before her parents left. A good read so far.

    Were they speaking PA Dutch? It was hard to understand them. I caught a few words that sounded German, but they were also speaking pretty fast (to me anyway).

    Christina I’d need to listen again but if it wasn’t English, I believe that would be the Hutterisch dialect, which originates in a part of Austria called Carinthia. PA Dutch would be primarily spoken by Amish and Old Order Mennonites today.

    Rick I thought the same. And nice you mention “I Am Hutterite”–we are going to be having a book giveaway and interview with Mary-Ann Kirkby coming up fairly soon here on the blog.

    I go to a dentist in Tijuana, Mexico. Earlier this year I encountered a family of Hutterites going to a Dr. for some type of treatment in Tijuana. They were friendly and very surprised I could tell they were Hutterite. We were staying at the same motel and ate breakfast together in the hospitality room. They were all dressed in their traditional Hutterite clothes. I tried mildly to obtain an invitation to visit them but they showed reluctance. I bless them wherever they are.

    I live in Southern Alberta and there are quite a few colonies around. They often come shopping in the store where I work. I notice there’s quite a variation in the way Hutterites dress. Some come in with the men in full Plain suits and black hats, the women in polka-dot headcoverings and square-shouldered dresses of brightly patterned blue and purple cloth. The little boys wear something that looks like a conductor’s cap. Other Hutterites appear to be more liberal; the men wear shirts and suspenders with a ball cap or straw hat, the women wear plain black headcoverings and their dresses are usually jumpers with a white blouse underneath. I’ve tried to figure out which groups these are, but have been unsuccessful. Would you happen to know?

      The first group you describe are indeed a more conservative group, called the Lehrerleut. The second group you describe can often be more liberal, depending on the colony. They are called the Dariusleut.
