An excellent new contribution to Native and Indigenous studies, and the author's innovative approach promises to open up a powerfully important set of new conversations about the colonial and settler-colonial relationships between Native Christians and women who are producing counterhegemonic acts of resistance to Christian colonial traumas within the space of the Catholic Church.

Indian Pilgrims focuses on Saint Kateri as the heart of worldwide Indigenous efforts to heal communities from the destruction of colonization, to care for Mother Earth, and to emphasize the Indigenous feminist views, and it highlights the importance of Indigenous activism as a vehicle for healing. This book represents a new view, a pioneering cultural depiction of a Catholic saint as a crucial core of Indigenous strength and healing.
