This is probably the best depiction I've seen of her. I love the movement. Her dress confuses me though...Is it Mohican?

Thank you.
Her dress is based on a painting by Jesuit Father Claude Chauchetiere who was one of the two Jesuits to witness her death. He painted it a few years afterward so the dress is probably representative of what she wore at Christian village of Sault Ste. Louis on the shore of the St. Lawrence River. You can see the portrait here:
