Great Britain is getting set to become a "great humiliation", according to a New York state representative.  The European nation is hosting a lacrosse world championship competition, but they are refusing to let the Iroquois Nationals Team enter the country to compete.  This is because, the British government says, their Iroquois Confederacy passports lack the security measures of those of other nations, and they say that the Nationals won't be allowed in unless they get either a U.S. or Canadian passport.  The Native American team contends that if they do this, it will be like renouncing their identity.  The Iroquois Confederacy passport is valid in many of the world's nations including, until recently, England.  By American and Canadian ruling, the confederacy is a sovereign nation unto itself, with its own laws and regulations.  The Confederacy is made up of the nations of the Oneida, Seneca, Tuscarora, Cayuga, Onondaga, and Mohawk people, my own tribe.  The Iroquois invented lacrosse over 1,000 years ago, making it the oldest continually played organized sport on the planet, so to deny entry in the tournament by the ancestors of the sport's creators is a terrible affront to my people.  In the photo below, team member Percy Abrams shows his Iroquois passport.
