Abstract: The Hutterites are a German-speaking Anabaptist Christian group in western Canada and the northern states of the Great Plains that practice community living and community of goods. Since their arrival in North America they have sought isolation from the secular world by locating their colonies in rural areas, away from other settlements, and screened off from public view. Hutterite leaders have avoided contact with the outside world as much as possible to prevent the infiltration of ideas antithetical to their faith and way of life. Radios and television were banned, although they embraced other forms of technology that improved their economic status without compromising their ideals. Beginning in the 1990s, the digital revolution gave ever-increasing easy access to the Internet via personal computers and smartphones. Hutterite leaders have attempted to manage this new threat, but their success has been limited, at best.
