Michael Galban and Eugene R. H. Tesdahl have discovered and translated a Seneca version of creation that was provided by René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, and dates back to 1678. Kevin J. White situates this 1678 version alongside other better-known Seneca versions and uses it to demonstrate the many similarities among them, the powerful memory and oratory skills of the Seneca, and the overall stability of oral culture among the Haudenosaunee.
