Saint Kateri Tekakwitha

North America's first aboriginal saint was canonized  today in Rome.  St. Kateri Tekakwitha, known as the Lily of the Mohawks, was the daughter of a Mohawk father and Algonquin mother.

Anne-Marie Phillips-Boyer was in Rome for the ceremony and spoke with Sonali Karnick about how emotional it was for her to witness the event.

The Mohawk community in Kanawake also held a special celebration for St.Kateri.  We spoke with one of the organizers of the event, Joe Delaronde.
