Native American Flute Students Going to Rome

St. Pius X Council 10762 concluded a very successful fundraising effort to help send three students of the Native American flute to Rome for the Canonization of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American Saint, in October. The students were invited to perform during the ceremony by the Vatican. The council has raised over $7,000 to help these young people realize this dream.

Vince Redhouse, their teacher and a member of Council 10762, and the students, Kyle Roanhorse, Murvyn Hoskie, Xuxua Garnenez, gave a concert at St. Pius X Church in Tucson Monday evening. They played a mix of Native American, classical, jazz and religious tunes. Solos by each of the students demonstrated not only the students’ talent but the teaching skill of Vince Redhouse.

To all who have donated to make their dream come true, please accept their sincere “thank you.” Your support will give them an opportunity to do something truly marvelous in their lives.
