Iroquois Lacrosse Sovereignty
FILE - In this Dec. 26, 1940 picture, Iroquois Indians who were born in Canada march through the main street of Buffalo, N.Y., carrying signs protesting that the U.S. pilgrim fathers were not required to be fingerprinted. They registered as aliens. Chief George Nash, right, was born on the Grand River, Ontario, Canada. An American Indian lacrosse team's refusal to travel on passports not issued by the Iroquois confederacy goes to the heart of one of the most sensitive issues in Indian Country _ sovereignty. The rights of Native nations to govern themselves independently has long been recognized by federal treaties, but the extent of that recognition beyond U.S borders is under challenge in a post-Sept. 11 world.
