Founded by the Six Nations-Iroquois Confederacy, the Iroquois Nationals is proud to be the only indigenous nation in the world participating in international sports competition. The Iroquois Nationals was established following a request from the NCAA to field a team for exhibition play with Canada and the United States NCAA national champions. The Haudenosaunee Six Nations Confederacy then formed a committee and decided to come up with the National Iroquois field Lacrosse team.
The Iroquois National aims to uplift the self-image of its youth through the tradition of lacrosse. The organization is governed by a well-represented board of directors from various territories in the Iroquois confederacy. Among its proud members include NCAA Lacrosse Champions, NCAA LAX All-American honors, lacrosse stick makers, and most notably, a member of the U.S. and Canadian Hall of Fame.
The Iroquois Nationals is deemed as the next big thing in the lacrosse sporting scene, with its rapid progression among the international ranks. To further recruit talented youth to its roster, the Iroquois Nationals has conducted various lacrosse clinics for natives in New York, Wisconsin, Colorado, and Canada.
