Known as the Lily of the Mohawks, St Kateri was the daughter of a Christian Algonquin woman who had been captured by Iroquois Indians and married to a pagan Mohawk chieftain. Kateri was born in upstate New York and was orphaned at an early age when her parents and siblings died of smallpox. She was left with poor eyesight and a badly disfigured face. However, she was a beautiful soul consecrated to Christ with a vow of virginity.
Sue painted the original of this icon in acrylics. The halo symbolizes her name, Lily of the Mohawks. The picture is a bit wintry, with little green dots for the seeds of new life in Christ that Kateri helped plant in North America. Sue modeled her face after a photo of an Algonquin lady and her clothing from other photos of Mohawk and Algonquin women. She is often shown with the Rosary and a cross made from sticks.
