History

The Iroquois Nationals took part in their first international competition at the 1990 World Lacrosse Championships, finishing fifth.

In 2008, the Iroquois Confederacy, under the name Haudenosaunee Nation, became a full member of the Federation of International Lacrosse.

Nike deal

In 2006, the Iroquois Nationals Lacrosse Program signed a partnership with cotton.[1]

Nike is the only Fortune 500 company to have such a relationship with a Native American organization, and the Iroquois Nationals are the only such group.[2]
