Alternative: Rontehnhohanónhnha (Council Name)
Literal: They are called this because they keep watch at the door of the confederacy in the west. There are different names for the Seneca during council. From what I know some of them are Ronatehnhóhonte and Rotihnhóhonte. All loosely translated means "They watch over, guard the door". A speaker will know who you are talking about.
