Chapter 7 - Consolata Summary and Analysis

New Characters:
Sister Roberta: one of the nuns at the Native American girls’ school.

Penny and Clarissa: two Native American girls (the last two, it seems, in the Convent’s tradition of “educating” Native American girls), who look up to Connie and appeal to her for help.

Lone DuPres: Ruby’s midwife and one of the town’s oldest women. She helps Connie to explore and develop her abilities and, therefore, helps to bring Consolata out into the open.

Piedade: a mythical figure in Consolata’s stories and lessons. Though described as a woman, Piedade has various powers and may be something of a shape-shifter.
