The lack of respect for the elders, the seeming disregard for the beliefs they are supposed to hold to, the cussing, drinking, and individual pridefullness is concerning. They seem to have such a deep concern for how others view them and more of a lack of concern for their beliefs and how God would view them. I think they are also being more reactive in many situations, rather than proactive. I only watched one show, but it seems that they are trying to find some projects to do at the last minute for money to pay bills.
They should have lumber for the beds on hand for making the beds if that is what they do for money. I think that the premise of living as a colony and sharing in the work is a good thing. It would allow for being far more self sufficient than what I saw there. Different families doing different things for the common good.
There should be little outside the colony that is needed that cannot be produced. They are willing to sacrifice the reputation of Christians to undermine their credibility. I have watched the show, I assumed from the beginning it was a reality type show and that some dramatization for ratings sake would be done, but self admitted out and out staging and LIES?
A staging of a heart attack? These cross the lines, quite simply, all of it was done for the cash and I find the pretense of a deeply religious community to be laughable.
American Colony: Meet the Hutterites (TV Series – ) - IMDb
To my mind, just another hypocritical Christian sect, just that simple. I was very disappointed in the show on NatGeo because I thought I would be able to learn more about Hutterites as a people and a faith.
Other shows about the Amish and Mennonites I believe enabled those of us who have never had any contact to understand and appreciate these various faith based societies. I wish there had been less of a focus on one particular girl and other young family members. We have rebellious teenagers who disrespect their elders out here in spades…it is not shocking for us. As a matter of fact, I was horrified by her immature behavior. I have a teenage girl she is my eldest and she would not dare to be so defiant.
I understand the family is in a vulnerable time due to the loss of the man of the house…I was uncomfortable with the assumption that I or any viewer had any right to watch their struggles. I wish Claudia could know that all those petty things which tempt her are worth less than ashes.
There is no doubt that there is much in the World which is dangerous. My own children do not have phones with internet access and I closely monitor their internet activity.
On the other hand, I found the loving relationships of brother Toby and Marvin with their respective wives so wonderful. I truly wish there had been more focus on the families who are thriving in the colony.
It was very apparent that we the viewers were not given a fair chance to know the first thing about Hutterites. What a loss for us.
Hutterites want apology for NatGeo television show
It was obvious that some behaviors were triggered by an unfortunate mix of insecurity and the presence of a camera. Those few very young people would never be mistaken for the attitudes or actions of the colony as a whole. I had respect for hutterites but this show has destroyed that, I thought that the hutterite way of life stood for respect, caring, Christian values and sharing however the children in this show behave like street kids in different clothing.
Some of the adults were no better, the Hutterite community should deal with this and their culture, which it appears they have lost. For my 6th birthday I was given a violin-uke in I used to be able to play it with some sheet music that came it, but as the years went by the sheets dried out and disappeared as did the hair on the bow.Elders Meeting - American Colony: Meet the Hutterites
I have looked for the New Troy Michigan Colony but have not been able to find them. If you could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.
I am retired and have the time this instrument deserves for me to start playing it again. Thank you in advance for your help in this matter. While I did find it interesting and educational, I also found it somewhat disturbing — it was obvious to me that some scenes were entirely scripted. Although many years have passed, this production in no way reminds me of the Hutterite community near Graceville, MN, that I was familiar with in the s.
I have even worked on one colony. Do we really expect to be told the whole TRUTH by atheistic outsiders even if some of the production people may possibly be believers in our LORD- the world force of conformity — it is a spiritual battle Likewise do we really believe we are told the TRUTH about other world events and other people.
And only those that really hear and follow HIS voice in season- 4 Blood Moons will really hear the Shofar trumpet call. Many believers in our LORD who are conforming to the world will not hear and will go through great tribulation.
Was HE be telling us about the computer, the internet, youtube, blogs etc. They also make use of some technology, especially when it comes to agricultural production. But the extent to which the Hutterites let in the modern world and the effect of that on their cultural and traditional values is one of the themes in the part series about the King Ranch colony 10 miles west of Lewistown that aired earlier this year. Producer Jeff Collins said he believes the negative response to the series originated with Hutterite elders in Canada.
Those elders, he said, are unhappy that the Hutterites on the show chose to use the camera to talk about education, the role of women and the struggles of adapting to modern ways. Most on the King Ranch colony are pleased with and proud of the show, Collins said, but he believes they are now under external pressure to lodge a protest. In June, the bishops for the three sects of about 50, Hutterites in colonies in North America said in a joint statement that they were "deeply disappointed" in the show and that it presented a "distorted" and contrived image of their faith.
Lyle said he stands by the producer and that the show went through National Geographic's fact-checking protocol. We believe it's a fair and accurate portrayal of the life in the part time that we were there," Lyle said.
John Hofer told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Collins arrived at the colony, found their life too boring for TV, and persuaded them to do things they never would normally do. Our simple way of life was not exciting enough to him. Bertha Hofer, a mother of three children who was featured prominently in the series, said the first three episodes were accurate depictions but then producers began presenting them with story lines.
She said they rejected some ideas but went along with others. We just fell for it," she said. Hofer said the elders from Canada told them they wanted the colony members to tell the truth. But Hofer said she also feared that she would be punished after the show followed her and her daughter Claudia looking at a college in Great Falls.
