Kateri Tekakwitha, who lived from 1656 to 1680, was a member of Canada’s Mohawk Native American tribe, from the Kahnawake Reserve near Montreal. She was made a saint by the Catholic Church in 2012. In October, the sixth anniversary of her canonisation was celebrated at the St. Francis Xavier Mission in Kahnawake. The choir sings in Mohawk, and some prayers can also be heard in this indigenous language.
