St. Kateri Tekawitha was born in 1656 in Ossernenon on the south side of the Mohawk river. She was of Algonquin and Mohawk bloodline. She contracted small pox at a young age which left her face scarred. Her family was completely wiped out from the epidemic. She became Catholic at age 19 , took a vow of chastity, and refused to marry. She was exiled from her tribe and died at age 24. Witnesses that saw her directly after her death said her face became perfect and radiant and her scars were gone. Many miracles were experienced by those with different diseases just by possessing items that belonged to her or were from her coffin. She is the first Native American saint canonized by the Catholic Church in 2012.
