In Her Footsteps: The Story of Kateri Tekakwitha

For 350 years, a young Christian Mohawk woman has been interceding for and inspiring natives and non-natives around the world. On October 2012, Kateri Tekakwitha became the first Native North American woman to be recognized as a Saint. 

This moving documentary takes us on a journey from northern New York State to Montrèal and Kahnawà:ke; from Washington State to New Mexico, as we follow St. Kateri's incredible journey of deep faith, heroic sacrifice and love of Christ.

Featuring many people who have been touched by her –including Philadelphia’s Archbishop Charles Chaput, OFM, of the Prairie Band Potawatomi tribe, the only Native American archbishop; Bishop James Wall of Gallup, NM, the diocese with the largest number of Native American Catholics; Sr. Kateri Mitchell, SSA, the Executive Director of the Tekakwitha Conference, and Jake Finkbonner, the little boy who received the miraculous healing that led to her canonization – the film shows that no one is too simple or too young to follow Christ, and that this woman, whose face was scarred and vision was weak, is still a source of Grace and healing for all.
