Why a Tepee?
St. Katharine was born into great wealth and prestige in Philadelphia in the mid-19th century. However, her parents modeled a holy life devoted to the poor and sick, and she, after reading about the plight of Native Americans, gave up her wealth to found Catholic schools and mission centers in 16 states. She made her home among the Native Americans, founded her own religious order, and founded Xavier University.
