English: The Amana Colonies were built and settled by German Pietists in Iowa, USA, comprising seven villages. They had first settled in New York state near Buffalo in what is now the town of West Seneca. However, they moved west, to east-central Iowa (near Iowa City) and the society purchased 18,000 acres of land. Between 1854 and 1859 the six Amana villages were founded: Amana (main Amana), West Amana, Süd (South) Amana, Amana vor der Höhe (High Amana), Ost (East) Amana and Mittel (Middle) Amana. A seventh Amana village, Homestead, was purchased because it was a station on the railroad. They lived a communal life until the mid-1930s.
Deutsch: Die Amana Colonies (zu deutsch Amanakolonien) bestehen aus mehreren Siedlungen im US-Bundesstaat Iowa. Die Amana sind eine christliche Glaubensgemeinschaft, die auf die pietistische Bewegung der Inspirierten in Deutschland zurückgeht. Sie beruhte in Iowa von 1855 bis 1932 auf Gemeineigentum, kollektiver Arbeit und der Versorgung ihrer Mitglieder aus dem gemeinsam Erwirtschafteten.
