PATRON OF OUR MOTHER EARTH
Artist: Joel Highet
Saint Kateri Tekakwitha
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.
