Penobscot people (that's their emblem she is holding).
And because she brought our new book on St Kateri as a gift for the Holy Father, she was able to be in the offertory procession at the Mass of Thanksgiving in St. Peter's the day after the canonization! Sister said that there were roughly 1,000 Native Americans at the celebration, which she attended with her parents.
The new book she is holding is part of our "Encounter the Saints" series for ages 8-12. (We have a poster of the book cover in our front window right now, and it really grabs people's attention: quite a feat on Michigan Avenue!)
