Chief Tony Cerda (L) of the Costanoan Rumsen Carmel Tribe of the Ohlone Nation and Rudy Rosales, Tribal Chairperson of the Ohlone Costanoan Esselen Natio, stand next to a statue of Franciscan Friar Junipero Serra during a Native American Cultural Study at the Carmel Mission in Carmel, California, September 15, 2015. The Diocese of Monterey invited Native Americans to offer input on how best to represent their cultural heritage at the California Mission Museums. Pope Francis will declare Friar Junipero Serra a saint at a Mass celebrated at the National Shrine in Washington on September 23 during the pontiff’s first visit to the United States. The Franciscan friar from Spain built a series of missions along the Pacific coast in the 18th century, in what is now California, to spread the faith among Native Americans. His advocates say he supported the Indians, introducing cattle and crops to their land. The Vatican has defended Serra against accusations that, as part of the Spanish colonial system, he suppressed Native Americans. Serra’s resting place is inside the Basilica at the Carmel Mission south of San Francisco. REUTERS/Michael FialaPICTURE 31 OF 35 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "POPE TO CANONISE FRIAR SERRA".
