Native Americans' Visas Denied

IMAGE:Mike Licht,

The Iroquois Nationals lacrosse team (a Native American team in the United States) was supposed to play in the 2010 World Lacrosse Championships in England from July 14 to 24, but the players were denied visas from the UK government. The players were traveling on their Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) passports that represent various nations of indigenous North Americans. The team members are descendants of the tribes that invented lacrosse.
