One topic of discussion at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Law Libraries in Denver this week was controversy over the Iriquois Nationals lacrosse team’s efforts to travel to the 2010 World LaCrosse Championship using Haudenosaunee (Iriquois) passports rather than United States passports. Yesterday’s story in Indian Country Today online provides details about the problems the team has encountered. The New York Times is reporting today that the State Department has agreed that the team may travel to England using their own documents. However, the British government refused to issue visas for the team, which forfeited its games in the tournament.
