I Am HutteriteUnknown - 2007
In 1969, Anne-Marie Dornn's parents did the unthinkable. They left a Hutterite colony near Portage la Prairie, Manitoba 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 is forced to deny her heritage in order to fit in with her peers. <i>I Am Hutterite</i> chronicles her quest to reinvent herself as she comes to terms with the painful circumstances that led her family to leave community life.
