Summary: Ann-Marie Dornn was born into a reclusive and extraordinary Hutterite colony near Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. This religious community was an idyllic place for a growing young girl, filled with adventure, strong bonds of friendship, rich delicious food, and a deep sense of belonging. But for her parents, it had become a community teeming with tension and conflict. So in 1969, her parents did the unthinkable. They left the colony with seven children, and little else, to start a new life. Overnight, the Dornns were thrust into a society they did not understand and that 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. She kept her secret well into adulthood, hoping to avoid the prejudice so associated with her culture. I Am Hutterite chronicles her quest to come to terms with a painful past. Rich with memorable characters and vivid descriptions, this groundbreaking narrative shines a light on intolerance, illuminating the simple truth that beneath every human exterior beats a heart longing for understanding and acceptance.
