Decade Rosary Bracelet

Handmade, the decade rosaries are made of Quebec Yellow Pine, metal, black and clear plastic prayer beads.  Inspired by Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Lily of the Mohawks, Mohawk artist Jessica Kwenonsontiso Loft, photographed Kahawinetha at age 24 in this scene along the Old Mohawk Trail along Lery Lake Quebec, Canada.  The photograph was taken after the last snowfall in March 2017.  A winter photo shoot was planned, to depict Saint Kateri Tekakwitha's 200 mile (320 km) long journey.  Tekakwitha fled under threat of death, blinded from the effects of the small pox disease, and she walked barefoot on the ice and snow from her community at Ossernenon to the sanctuary of the missionary village at Kahnawake.  Kateri Tekakwitha died one year after her journey during Holy Week.  She was 24.   Jessica and Kahawinetha both reside in the traditional territory of Kahnawake at Chateauguay, Quebec and are members of the matrilineal Turtle Clan.  


Tekakwitha was born around 1656 to a Mohawk Chief named Kenneronkwa and a converted Catholic Algonquin mother named Tagaskouita a member of the Turtle Clan. 

Decade Rosary Bracelet 

Each decade rosary bracelet adorns her portrait, a metal cross and eagle feather.  The North American bald eagle is highly sacred to all aboriginal peoples, and is a symbol of power, strength, and the metal feather charm is a tribute to Saint Kateri Tekakwitha's courageous tribal roots.

Condensed from: Fr. Pierre Cholenec’s Catherine Tekakwitha: Her Life

(Credit for the topic of Miracles:

Numerous heavenly favours have been attributed to Kateri. Many are healings. There have also been apparitions.  Kateri’s face had been scarred and made swarthy from the small pox she had had when she was four years old. About fifteen minutes after her death, the scarring faded and her face became clear and fair.  

Kateri’s life and death sanctified the mission. Widows renounced remarriage. Penance and devotions were practiced. A woman spent the entire night of Good Friday rolling around on pine needles just as Kateri had done.

On the sixth day following Kateri’s death–Easter Monday–at four in the morning, an individual was at prayer when Kateri appeared surrounded in glory, looking up into heaven as in an ecstasy. The vision lasted two hours. Other prophetic images accompanied this image. On Kateri’s right side, there was an image of a church upside down, and nearby to the left, a native person was attached to a post and being burned alive. This apparition occurred in April of 1680.

Kateri appeared to this same person twice more, in September of 1681 and in April of 1682. In the vision, Kateri said, “Look closely and make it according to the example.” Some images of Kateri were painted, and when they were placed on the head of a sick person, miraculous cures resulted.

Kateri appeared to Anastasie, her spiritual mother, eight days after her death. In one of the visions, Kateri held a cross pouring forth light. Kateri told Anastasia to look at the cross and counseled her to take up her own. In another vision, Kateri reminded Anastasie of something blameworthy she had done and gave her some advice.

There was a priest who had been planning to publish Kateri’s virtues. However, he had reservations due to some information he had received about her life. In doubt as to whether or not to believe what he had heard, he was called to help a man who was dying. The man was so sick he could barely make his Confession. The priest suggested that they appeal to Kateri, and the dying man agreed. The priest gave the man the crucifix that Kateri had had in her hands at her burial. Soon after, the man had to leave his bed, so that the bedding could be changed. Shortly after arising from bed, he collapsed to the floor, in the manner of one who would shortly die. He was placed in bed once more and fell into a deep sleep. When he awoke again, he found himself cured and no longer in any danger.
