Note on respectful use

Haudenosaunee names such as those documented in this recording are given to Haudenosaunee children by clan mothers according to traditional protocols. These name-giving traditions are actively maintained by Haudenosaunee communities in the present day. Under these protocols, a particular name can only be held by one living person at a time. Researchers not authorized by a Haudenosaunee community to give out names in this manner are advised to observe respectful use of this recording and to consult it as a resource for its historical and linguistic information, not as a source for selecting names.
