Welcome to the Tekakwitha Conference Website! 



As we, a native people, enter into Holy Week & Triduum, and we look upon the many sufferings of our Lord we are reminded of the redemptive quality of human suffering. In Sacred Scripture, Saint Paul encouraged his fellow disciples when he proclaimed, “It is through many persecutions that we must enter the kingdom of God.” (Acts 14:22) Suffering, as the saints' lives bore witness, is a sure path to God, for in our suffering we are given the opportunity to unite our suffering with those which Christ endured. Unite yourselves with Christ and implore the prayerful help of our patroness during this season.

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, who suffered so greatly in your own life, pray for us! 





"Cry out with joy and gladness; for among you is the great and Holy One of Israel" Isaiah 12:6




"It is God who made the universe in beauty, dignity and holiness" Psalm 96

The Tekakwitha Conference is a religious non-profit organization that advocates evangelization among the Indigenous Catholics of North America and to all who desire to walk humbly with God.

The heart of the Vision and Mission is to share God's Word with our brothers and sisters and live the Gospel message in the spirit of our patroness, Saint Kateri Tekakwitha. She is a faithful model as a follower of Jesus. Saint Kateri Tekakwitha is known as the patroness of ecology and care for all of God's creation.

We invite you to visit us often and to learn more about this organization. We are named in honor of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha who was canonized the First Indigenous Woman of North America on October 21, 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI in Rome, Italy. Our Annual Tekakwitha Conference, a gathering of All Nations, is dedicated to her as well.



St. Kateri, guide and direct us!
