Kateri Tekakwitha (1656 – April 17, 1680), the Algonquin–Mohawk woman featured in Leonard Cohen’s 1966 novel, “Beautiful Losers” and canonized as a saint in 2012, moved to the Jesuit mission village of Kahnawake, south of Montreal, after she converted to Roman Catholicism at age nineteen and lived there the last five years of her life.
