Saint Kateri was born in 1656 and died in 1680. She converted to the Catholic faith at the age of 19 and took the name “Kateri” which means “Catherine” in her native language, because of her devotion to St. Catherine of Siena.
Saint Kateri is the first Native American to be recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church. She is the patroness of the environment, ecology, people in exile and Native Americans.
Her feast day is July 14.
