N.M. Catholic church to dedicate statue to Kateri
Tuesday, August 12, 2003

The Catholic Archdiocese in Santa Fe, New Mexico, will dedicate a statue to the Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha this Saturday.

Kateri was a Mohawk woman who lived during the 17th century. She has been beatified by the church, a step before full sainthood. Supporters credit her with many miracles, including the recent recovery of a Cochiti Pueblo woman who awoke from a 16-year coma in 1999.

The Catholic Church has granted sainthood to one Indian, Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin, an Aztec man who lived in the 16th century in Mexico.
