    Kateri is not the first North American saint. St. Peter the Aleut was an Orthodox American fisherman who strayed south from Alaska and was martyred by the Spanish in California.

    What is a saint?
    I believe a saint is one who has accepted Jesus Christ as his own personal savior and is saved.
    Thus, your Catholic saint is not the 1st Native American Saint.

      Hi Dolores,

      A saint is one who has been recognized for having an exceptional degree of holiness, sanctity, and virtue. The act of accepting Jesus Christ as one’s personal saviour and believing that one has been saved won’t make a person a Saint. One has to live an exceptional holy life. Kateri Tekakwitha has passed the qualification for Sainthood and has been recognized for her holiness thus she is the First Native American saint.

      There’s no point arguing about it. God bless you if you aspire to be a saint.

      That is what I was thinking… Native America spans from Alaska to Chile.

      In solidarity,
      Krista
