Celebrate the "Lily of the Mohawks" with a St. Kateri Tekakwitha medal or Kateri Tekakwitha statue. She was born in 1657 in upstate New York. A St. Kateri medal honors her journey as she was exiled from her tribe due to the scars on her face and body from small pox, being orphaned, and converting to Catholicism. Dying at age 24, her scars disappeared revealing her extreme beauty. She is the patron saint of ecologist, loss of parents, people in exile, and Native Americans. Therefore, a Kateri Tekakwitha statue and a St. Kateri Tekakwitha medal are highly meaningful gifts for persons suffering from loss or to honor the gifts of Native Americans.
