Saint Kateri Tekakwitha: Courageous Faith
Marsh, Emily (Author), Fisher, Lillian M (Author), Kiwak, Barbara (Author)
Uncover the sunshine of a Mohawk-Algonquin girl who experiences loss, ostracism, and religious persecution, yet courageously holds on to her faith. Perfect for ages 9 to 12, this 31st volume in the Encounter the Saints series familiarizes children with the first Native American woman to be declared a saint. Her life story is set within colonialism that brought undesirable consequences and tribal tensions that intensified with the arrival of Christian missionaries.
