Film about Native American Catholicism to air on WHAS-TV

“Enduring Faith: The Story of Native American Catholicism,” a documentary produced by the Knights of Columbus, will air at 1 p.m. June 13 on WHAS-11.

The documentary highlights stories of Native American Catholicism, such as the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe to an Indigenous elder in the 16th century; the canonization of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American saint; and Nicholas Black Elk, a 20th century Lakota healer.

“The film will inspire in viewers a deeper appreciation for the spiritual and cultural gifts of Native American Catholics, a greater awareness of the wrongs inflicted upon them by the unjust policies of the British and American governments and a sense of hope at how Native American Catholics continue to live out their faith in fully enculturated ways today,” said a press release from the Knights of Columbus. “Above all, it offers a missing piece to the greater story of Catholicism in America and a beautiful example of how Christ reveals himself through the uniqueness of every culture.”
