Mennonites of Manitoba
In the summer of 1874, a German speaking group of Mennonite immigrants from Russia began to flow into the virgin prairie of southern Manitoba. Sixty-thousand Mennonites now live along a band of fertile land hugging the Canadian-American border. With a core of beliefs centered around a faith in God, a productive life and pacifism, the Mennonites have lived in Manitoba for more than 125 years. This documentary explores the history and culture and the Mennonites in Manitoba and explores how the Mennonite culture maintains its connections to its historical beliefs while living surrounded by the modern world in Winnipeg and Manitoba. It also looks at the dual character of a Mennonite. Mennonite denotes a religious group based on common beliefs, but it also indicates a certain ethnicity.
