Eighteen artists reflect, re-examine and/or critique the phenomenon of Kateri Tekakwitha (Mohawk), prominent “saint” figure among the converted. The exhibition re-imagines Kateri through an Indigenous lens that includes recontextualizing history and the impact of convergence that shifted religion, tradition and cultural practices across North America.
