Iroquois team to use tribal passports

Iroquois Lax Team Cleared to Travel with Haudenosaunee PassportsThe Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse team’s website confirmed that the unlike last year’s unnecessary fiasco, the team will be able to travel to the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships in Prague, held on May 21-28, using their own Haudenosaunee passports.

The Nationals were unable to attend last year’s World Lacrosse Championships in England on July 15 because both the British Consulate, as well as the U.S. State Department, refused to recognize the team’s passports. This year, Czech immigration officials promised they would pose no obstacles to the team entering the Czech Republic, regardless if they use their Haudenosaunee passports.
