14 July, the Memorial of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, first Native American Indian to be beatified

He was a Benedictine monk who established annual Catholic Indian Congresses, now known as “The Tekakwitha Conference.” He also inspired St. Katherine Drexel, before she became a nun, to contribute to the welfare of Native American Indians.
