I was incredibly moved to hear by way of a Kahnawake friend that Ireland Lacrosse has dropped out of the World Lacrosse championships to allow the Iroquois Nationals to take their place. For some odd reason, the qualification process was limited to IOC members, leaving the people who invented the game on the outside looking in.
“As much as our players would have been honored to compete, we know the right thing is for the Iroquois Nationals to represent our sport on this international stage."
It is very hard to convey how moving this is. The traditional colours are purple and gold-yellow. I am told they are doing everything they can to get new green uniforms in time.
