Artist: Joel Highet

 

Saint Kateri Tekakwitha

Born: 1656

Died: April 17, 1680

Canonized: October 21, 2012

Patron Saint of the Environment and Ecology

 

Saint Kateri was the first Native American to be recognized as a Saint by the Catholic Church.

 

Through the help of Google I found Saint Kateri. It let more like she found me through this particular rendition. I liked how the original artist (Barbara Barratt) wove her image in with the natural surroundings.
