Women like the Blessed Catherine Tekakwitha
and the nuns of the Convent of Corpus Christi, the first convent in the Americas to allow Indian women to profess as nuns, were treated as exceptions by Europeans in their own time, but, Diaz observes, recent scholars have also been guilty of what Carolyn Dean and Dana Leibsohn call the "deceit of visibility" in ways that, ironically, render these exceptional women invisible as Indians (13, 13-19).

and the Jesuits (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2005).
Dans son Catherine Tekakwitha
et les jesuites, recemment traduit (30), Allan Greer ausculte assez finement cette rencontre, apres avoir evoque la spiritualite de la Reforme catholique qu'il compare a celle des Agniers.
Greer does indeed focus on individual "lives," and by addressing the specific concerns of each, gradually creates the mosaic that is the life of Catherine Tekakwitha
(Kateri Tegakouita [1656-80]), "Saint of the Mohawks.
, a Mohawk convert who followed a life of penance and chastity without having taken formal religious vows, died in April 1680; after her death, Indigenous women of New France described Catherine's "apparitions" to them in which she bid farewell and rose into heaven (Greer, Mohawk Saint 19).
Allan Greer has described this book as a "dual biography" of the famous Blessed Catherine Tekakwitha
and her hagiographer, the Jesuit priest Claude Chauchetiere.
It is precisely this investigation into the mindset of the various players that lends a particular strength to Allan Greer's neutral and meticulously researched account of the intertwined lives of Mohawk Catherine Tekakwitha
and Jesuit Missionary Claude Chauchetiere.
Ces deux figures sont celles de la bienheureuse Catherine Tekakwitha
et du jesuite Claude Chauchetiere, la premiere relativement bien connue, le second, beaucoup moins, sinon par quelques rares specialistes.
