Melissa Borgia-Askey, a Slippery Rock University instructor of English, wrote an article that was published in Voices, the journal of New York Folklore.

Her piece, titled “Hadigeodönyö (They Tell Stories),” tells the story of the Hodínöhšö:ni:h (Haudenosaunee) community through the performance and reimagining of their creation. Haudenosaunee refers to the alliance of six Native American nations that are more commonly known as the Iroquois Confederacy. The article appeared in the 46th volume of Voices, which is published for NYF members.
