Narrative: Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, a 17th century Mohawk, and Nicholas Black Elk, the visionary Lakota Medicine Man who when baptized a Catholic became a leading catechist on the Pine Ridge Reservation, hold up the Christ whose feet are wreathed in a circle of healing sage. The Virgin Mother wraps Her Son and His followers in Her protective mantle.
Traditional iconography gives witness to the human face of the Sacred. This icon, imaged in the features of America’s indigenous peoples, reveals anew that sacred power. It celebrates the soul of the Native American as the original spiritual presence on this continent, and as a prophetic sign, it celebrates the reconciliation of the spiritual vision of Native and Christian peoples of this land. (This narrative is printed on the back of Note Cards. A copy is included with each plaque.)
