Dokiya Humenna (1904–1996) was a notable Ukrainian and Ukrainian American writer celebrated for her extensive contributions to the literary Ukrainian diaspora. Her literary journey commenced with the publication of "U Stepu" (In the Steppe) in 1924, a piece that garnered attention in prominent Soviet Ukrainian literary journals and earned her a place among the members of the massist peasant writers’ association Pluh. Escaping the upheaval of the German invasion of the USSR, she sought refuge in Lviv, where she continued to make significant contributions to local journals and press. After the war, she relocated to Austria and later Germany, spending several years in displaced persons’ camps from 1946 to 1949. During this period, she became actively involved with the artistic-literary organization Mystetsky Ukrainsky Rukh (MUR) and commenced work on her renowned four-volume series, "Dity Chumatskoho Shliakhu" (Children of the Milky Way, 1948-1951), which she completed after settling in New York City.
