AUGUST 4, 2000 The Kateri Conference, a five-day gathering honoring Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, held a grand entry march on Thursday, gathering groups from throughout Indian Country and the world in order to pray for sainthood of the Mohawk woman. Tekakwitha lived in the late 17th century in New York. Considered by many to be worthy of sainthood, she would become the first Native American saint declared by the Catholic Church. Tekakwitha is credited with many miracles, including the recent recovery of a Cochiti Pueblo woman, who awoke from a 16-year coma in 1999. Frank LaMere, Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, made the keynote address. Get the Story:
