Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha- Feast Day July 14

Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha was a Native American who was Christian, against the wishes of her tribe and uncle. She has an amazing story! Here are some fun ways to celebrate her upcoming feast day:

Try crafting these teepeees with That Artist Woman.
She has a template!

from Catholic Online. I love these!

from St. John the Baptist Church- these are just
beautiful and a great free resource! Scroll down past the stations.

Check out these comic book pages about
Blessed Kateri at Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact.

I loved these God's Eyes- they look very 
Native American with the feathers, yet they're Christian. 
I thought it might be neat given Blessed Kateri's story. 

Blessed Kateri seems to always be holding a cross made
from sticks in her pictures, so I thought it would be really cool to
make a stick crucifix like this on from Growing with my Girls!

And here are some free printable Native American
paper dolls- maybe give her a cross! ;-)

By the way, I'm not pretending to know anything about the particular tribe Blessed Kateri came from. For all I know, they didn't live in teepees- although there are pictures of teepees in the comic book pages about her... Lol!

  1. lol they in fact, did not live in teepees. My grandfather is a mohawk and Kateri's father was a mohawk. Her mother was algonquin. They lived in longhouses. This is still a great assortment of activites for learning about native americans in general. I chose Kateri as my Confirmation Saint when I was baptised/confirmed 3 years ago ;) I found more info about Mohawks here:

  2. oh and we will be using many of the resources you listed! Thanks so much for finding them for us!!! You're awesome!

  3. very cool. I will forward this to my sis whose name is Katherine and whose patron saint is Blessed Kateri.

  4. I love these ideas, Lacy! Thanks once again for putting these together for the Catholic community. You're a very special lady.

  5. Great Idea, thanks for sharing
    God bless you


Thanks for your comments! They're the icing on my cake ;-)
