Saint Jean de Brébeuf, (March 25, 1593 – March 16, 1649) one of the eight North American Martyrs was a French Jesuit missionary who traveled to New France (or Canada) in 1625. There he worked primarily with the Huron for the rest of his life. He learned their language and culture. In 1649 Brébeuf and several other missionaries were captured when an Iroquois raid took over a Huron village. Together with Huron captives, the missionaries were ritually tortured and eight were killed.
