Tekakwitha Conference being held in El Paso

The 65th annual Tekakwitha Conference for Catholic Native Americans began on Thursday in El Paso, Texas.

A reported 1,000 people are attending the event, named after Tekakwitha, a 16th-century Mohawk woman who is a candidate for sainthood. Catholic Indians have credited her with several miracles.

Catholic and Native traditions both play a prominent role at the conference. It runs through Sunday.
