The eight North American martyrs, also known as the Canadian Martyrs, the Jesuit Martyrs of North America or the Martyrs of France, included six priests and two lay brothers. They traveled from Renaissance France to the wild North American frontier as missionaries to win souls for Christ.  All were martyred by the North American Indians. They are the first Catholic martyred saints of North America and were canonized on June 29, 1930.
