DESCRIPTION

Nineteen 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 re-contextualizing history and the impact of convergence that shifted religion, tradition and cultural practices across North America.

Artists include: America Meredith, Walter K. Scott, Rosalie Favell, George Littlechild, Jason Garcia, Tammy Rahr, Julie Buffalohead, Dyani Lyn Reynolds-White Hawk, Anita Fields, Ross Montour, Marcella Ernest, Rita Iringan, Deborah Jojola, Katsitsionni Fox, Estella Loretto, Marcus Amerman, Sherry Farrell Racette, Tania Willard and Linda Lomahaftewa.

Curated by Ryan Rice, Chief Curator, MoCNA.
