Artist's Description

March 24 2012

!The Orthodox Mennonites consist of two separate but related groups of Old Order Mennonites located in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. The original unified group, named Elam Martins, was a division from the David Martin Mennonites in Waterloo Region, Canada in 1957. The Elam Martins, named after their bishop Elam S. Martin (who as a minister was excommunicated from the David Martin Mennonites in 1956), became the Orthodox Mennonite Church in 1962, but divided in 1974, primarily over the enforced wearing of beards. The beard wearing group, which included Bishop Elam S. Martin, moved to Howick, Ontario en masse in 1979. They are today nicknamed “Gorries”, but are more correctly referred to as Orthodox Mennonite Church, Huron County, Ontario. The other group remained in the Waterloo Region and are referred to as Orthodox Mennonite Church, Waterloo County, Ontario. The Orthodox Mennonites live very simply, with no electricity or telephones on their farms. They shun automobiles and computerized technologies, and use work horses instead of tractors in the fields.*
