The Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse have been excluded in playing in the 2022 World Games which will include 8 teams."Qualifications for the World games was based primarily on final placement in 2017 (women's) and 2018 (men's) World championships organized by the Federation of International Lacrosse, now World Lacrosse. The Iroquois Nationals men finished 3rd and are full members, like other countries included." but they have not received an invite despite placing 3rd. Teams ranked lower have been selected instead.
The Medicine game (Lacrosse) was gifted to the World and other nations by the Haudenosaunee People and to show this outright disrespect and discrimination is not what this game stands for. We collectively stand in support of the inclusion of the Iroquois Nationals team, in fact, it is each nation who should show gratitude to the Haudenosaunee for their generosity to the world for including us in their powerful game.
We respectfully ask you to sign this in an act of solidarity in advocating for their invitation and inclusion to this event. We also ask the other Nations to courageously unite in support and sign this petition/ refuse to participate: Australia, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Japan, United States, Czech Republic, Israel, New Zealand.
Many Thanks #WEnotME
