Pincher Creek Hutterite Bruderhof, of the Dariusleut, located at Pincher Creek, Alberta, was founded in 1927 by members of the Raley Brotherhood. Their preacher Jacob Hofer was chosen in 1924 by the Raley Bruderhof, and with several families from this Bruderhof founded Pincher Creek. Paul Gross was chosen preacher here. In 1950 this Bruderhof had 85 souls, including 30 baptized members.

Daughter colonies of the Pincher Creek Hutterite Colony include: Spokane Hutterite Colony (Reardan, Washington, USA); Marlin Hutterite Colony (Marlin, Washington, USA); and Hines Creek Hutterite Colony (Rosebud, Alberta, Canada). The Spokane Hutterite Colony has sometimes been referred to as the Espanola Hutterite Colony.
