    Hutterites, Mennonites & The Amish

    I'm just curious, does anyone know if Hutterites are Canadian Amish. When I lived in Manitoba, there wear many Hutterite colonies outside of the city, and I think there is some kind of Mennonite connection as well.

    Amish are different from Hutterites and Menonites. H & M do use electricity and other modern conveniences. Although they do leave school at the same time.

    I found the answers on the web, and they are both different sects related to the Anabaptists in the 1500's, but Hutterites welcome technology, church is in german, they learn german high and low in school etc, and are not political and school ends at 15. A lot of Hutterites moved to Canada from America during WW11 to avoid the draft and that's why there are so many of them are here, the original draft dodgers! They dress in dark colours, but still a lot of similarity between the two and there is some kind of mennonite connection as well.

    I understand the draft thing. My faith also forbids fighting in wars etc. Must be neutral. That's interesting to learn.
