“Your mother and father are running away," said a voice piercing the warm air. I froze and turned toward home. To a Hutterite, nothing is more shameful than that word, running away, Weglaufen...” In 1969, Ann-Marie’s parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony in Canada with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the family was thrust into a society they did not understand and which knew little of their unique culture. The transition was overwhelming. Desperate to be accepted, ten-year-old Ann-Marie was forced to deny her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to reinvent herself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family to leave community life. Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this ground-breaking narrative shines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth that beneath every human exterior beats a heart longing for understanding and acceptance. “A superb memoir . . . this has the makings of a prairie classic.” --AWARD JURY, SASK BOOK AWARDS “Honest, strong, clear, direct, it opens the door on what has been for so many of us a completely closed world.” --WINNIPEG FREE PRESS

The oldest and largest communal society in North America, the Hutterites - Anabaptists of German origin, like the Amish - have long been the subject of scholarly study and popular curiosity. This work tells the story of the Hutterite beginnings in their original homelands, particularly in Tyrol and Moravia. By examining these origins, it reveals relationships among early Anabaptist sects.

"This study has been motivated by the desire to produce a text that would be interdisciplinary, useful in more than one course, at different levels of reading skill, and that would give a viewpoint on Hutterites and on the problems of minority groups that would enable students not only to achieve understanding but to debate and analyse issues."--The book.

While in prison during 1540-42, Riedemann wrote for the Lutheran ruler, Philip of Hesse. He explained the Hutterite goal of a renewed community and dispelled popular misconceptions. The Hutterites quickly accepted Riedemann's confession as their own. Riedemann creatively wove together a fresh reading of the Bible with the classical creeds. He produced a powerful synthesis of Scripture and tradition on which to base Christian community. His dynamic vision of radical and communal discipleship still challenges believers toward greater faithfulness to the Lord and to each other. Riedemann's confession gives theological grounding for the Hutterite understanding of economic communalism and offers practical examples of it. This confession continues to guide Hutterite communities today. The book also includes John J. Friesen's translation of the 1565 German edition of Confession of Our Religion, Teaching, and Faith, by the Brothers Who Are Known as the Hutterites, along with a new history of Riedemann. This is the ninth volume in the Classics of the Radical Reformation, a series of Anabaptist and Free Church documents translated and annotated under the direction of the Institute of Mennonite Studies. 272 Pages.

The Mennonites, Hutterites, and Doukhobors have traditionally lived as communities somewhat separate from the larger society, with distinctive communal ideals and practices regarding landholding, the education of children, exemption from military service, and non- participation in certain social welfare programs. This study examines the ambivalent response of Canadian governments, federal and provincial, to the special status and needs of these groups. Acidic paper.
