A Native American Heritage celebration recently took place at Holy Name Catholic School in honor of the Catholic church's first ever canonization of a Native American saint. Kateri Tekakwitha was a Mohawk baptized on Easter Day 1676. Her life of piety and the miracles that followed her death were documented by the Jesuit missionaries. Students listened to explanations of Native American cultural beliefs and participated with great enthusiasm in traditional circle drumming and dancing. Young dancers in their Native regalia were Andrew Sargent, left, Cameron Willemsen, Keyanna Godfrey, Reina Eastman and Megan Lukezich.
