  • KATERI TEKAKWITHA

    (Also known as Catherine Tegakwitha/Takwita.)

    Known as the "Lily of the Mohawks", and the "Geneviève of New France" an Indian virgin of the Mohawk tribe, born according to some authorities at the Turtle Castle of Ossernenon, according to others at the village of Gandaouge, in 1656; died at Caughnawaga (Kahnawake), Québec, Canada, 17 April, 1680.

    Her mother was a Christian Algonquin who had been captured by the Iroquois and saved from a captive's fate by the father of Tekakwitha, to whom she also bore a son. When Tekakwitha was about four years old, her parents and brother died of small-pox, and the child was adopted by her aunts and a uncle who had become chief of the Turtle clan. Although small-pox had marked her face and seriously impaired her eyesight and her manner was reserved and shrinking, her aunts began when she was yet very young to form marriage projects for her, from which, as she grew older, she shrank with great aversion.

  • You say I took the name in vain

    I don't even know the name
