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.
She said she is fighting for a full education for her children, while the elders believe in an eighth-grade education for most colony members, she said. The ed "We're just waiting to see what will happen, it's just day to day," she said. Colony spokeswoman Mary-Ann Kirkby said the levels of Hutterite education differ by colony and by sect.
In general, she said, the elders are not against education but are concerned that young Hutterites who leave for public school may never return to the colony. Claudia Hofer wrote in a statement released by the Hutterite colony through a spokeswoman that most of the scenes she was in were staged and scripted. Another colony member, Wesley Hofer, said in another statement released by the colony that an episode in which he was rushed to a hospital for what was believed to be a heart attack was staged.
Reply to Comment Comment on This is not a typical colony August 1st, at I think this colony is a little more liberal than most but I will say the Harlem colony is very nice!
The Turner colony is an older colony but are very nice people especially Annie Hoffer who loves to make dresses for the women. One thing people have to understand is this is not a cult.

They believe in what they believe in and I have never seen anyone complain or look like they are jailed up. BTW the Harlem colony has some of the best looking cattle I have ever seen. And how are they able to go????? Where I come from, it takes 8 yrs.

Am I missing something here????? That colony got a lot of criticism from other colonies across the US and Canada. As for only going to the 8th grade, usually they do not go on to any kind of further education.
Basically they go to school because the law requires it. There are a few colonies where students take some high school courses through a special program.
Or at least it is suppose to be. I watched all the Hutterite shows on Natgeo and I loved them.
Hutterites want apology for NatGeo television show
Nobody wants people in their business but the minute a person or group of people are shown on tv, then everyone has an opinion on their business. Who cares what they do or how they live as long as they are not stock piling weapons or letting off bombs to hurt the rest of us. They are not doing to anything to hurt anyone else so let them do and believe as they wish. I thought they were wonderful people. They all appear to love each other very much and will do anything for each other. As far as drinking and bad language, where else does that happen in the US?
Most households that I know it does.
