The exhibition Godi’nigoha’ – The Women’s Mind was composed of pieces from contemporary Iroquoian women artists, Patricia Deadman, Kelly Greene, Shelley Niro, and Jolene Rickard. It is “an examination of an Iroquois women’s perspective on the land and landscape”. The catalogue has photos of the photographs, paintings, and installments that make up the exhibit. A one-day interdisciplinary symposium was held to further explore related questions around Iroquoian women’s traditional relationship to land. The catalogue also includes a small written by Dr. Deborah Doxtator exploring Iroquois women and their connection to the land pre and post contact.
