Follow-up: Let’s play lacrosse

The Native American lacrosse team will be allowed to return to the U.S. once they participate in the world lacrosse tournament in the UK, the State Department said today.

The team, which the U.S. refused to allow to travel on their sovereign nation passports (see previous News Cut post on this), will be allowed to do so.

The Iroquois invented the game. “The general consensus is that the Iroquois are the inventors of the game and it would be like having the Olympics in Greece and not having the Greeks there,” the team’s director told CBS News today.
