artifact description
This publication is divided into three major parts. The first part attempts to answer such questions as Who are the Hutterites? What do they believe? and Where are they in South Dakota? The second part reports on the 1968 census of these communal farms and summarizes the sect's enterprises and changes in farm operations. The third part presents a pictorial account of Poinsett Colony, one of the newest Hutterite colonies in South Dakota.
