St. Kateri Tekakwitha was a young Native American woman who lived in New York state in the 17th century. Although her culture was worlds different from the European culture that was being established there, she was open to the words of the Christian Jesuits who were bringing the word of God to the Native Americans. Lily of the Mohawks, by Emily Cavins, tells the story of St. Kateri's spiritual and human experiences and suggests ways that we can look at her life and try to live and emulate her faith. As the book says "if we pause to observe St. Kateri Tekakwitha, we find a model of a person who was engulfed in cataclysmic change, yet exhibited simplicity, humility and devotion to Christ". The reader finds out why St. kateri wanted to become a Christian and what her later influence was on the Mohawk Catholic community among other information. St. Kateri Tekakwitha was canonized on October 12, 2012 over 300 years after she died and is considered to be the patron saint of environmental issues. The back of Lily of the Mohawks contains information about shrines and geographical areas that are associated with her life.
