About St. Kateri Tekakwitha

St. Kateri Tekakwitha is the first Native American to be honored by the Catholic Church as a saint. She was born in Ossernenon, a Mohawk town, in 1656. Her mother was an Algonquin woman who was kidnapped by the Mohawks and married a Mohawk chief.

She suffered smallpox as a four-year-old child, which left scars on her skin. The scars were a source of humiliation for her during her adolescence. She was frequently seen with her face hidden beneath a blanket. Worse, the virus claimed the lives of her entire family. Kateri Tekakwitha was raised by her uncle, the chief of a Mohawk clan.

Kateri was known as a diligent worker who was also patient. She, on the other hand, was adamantly opposed to marriage. She turned down a suitor who had been proposed to her by her adoptive parents. They punished her by giving her extra work, but she refused. She remained silent and focused instead. They were eventually forced to give in and accept her refusal to marry.

In many aspects, Kateri’s life was comparable to those of other young Indigenous girls. Days were spent performing chores, having fun with other girls, and making plans for her future. Kateri grew into a lovely young lady with a gentle, caring personality. She helped her aunts in the fields, where they tended to maize, beans, and squash while also looking after their traditional longhouse. She went on a trip in the neighboring woods to collect the roots that would be used to produce medicines and dyes. She went for a walk in the woods to gather firewood and water from a nearby river. Despite her low vision, Kateri became an expert at beadwork.

Kateri may have had lovely memories of her devout Catholic mother and the spiritual stories she and her mother shared as a child. These would have made an everlasting imprint on her mind and heart, defining and directing her life’s path. Kateri would frequently travel to the woods alone to talk to God and listen to him in her heart and through the voice of nature.
