5,515 graves, mostly Native Americans, were moved to a group grave, in accordance with the Indians' wishes, near today's Grotto and a statue of Kateri Tekawitha, a Mohwak maiden, with the following inscription: "In prayerful memory of our faithful Indians". They had the custom of burying in rows and in time disinter and put the remains in a "Charnel House" which they had at the Mission.
