Sure, I will let her think I had them custom made. How many people do you know whose name is Kateri? Win/win
We are members of an American Heritage Girls troop. The patron saint of the organization is St. Kateri. We had two girls complete their Catholic faith award and were recognized by the archdiocese - these were the perfect token for their accomplishment!
Very thin socks. Would like to see them offered in merino wool.
We will keep your 'sock'ggestion in mind for future products! We currently make only dress socks, but would love to be able to provide a wider range of styles, fit, and material in the future!
The first Native American canonized saint, St. Kateri Tekakwitha was the daughter of a Mohawk chief of the Turtle Clan. The Mohawk nation along with four other nations buried their weapons to be at peace. These nations are represented by the white and purple Hiawatha Belt across the top of the sock.
As a young girl, Kateri was commonly seen wearing a blanket to hide her face because of scars that developed as a result of smallpox. She lost her entire family to the smallpox epidemic and was adopted by her uncle. Known as the Lily of the Mohawks, Kateri refused to marry and as a result, her family punished her with additional work. At age 19, Kateri converted to Catholicism, taking a vow of chastity and only desiring to marry Jesus. She then traveled south of Montreal to join a Christian native community and live out her mission of charity and prayer.
