It would be like the Olympics without Greece...

...Lacrosse without the Iroquois.
None of us would be going to Birmingham, Ala., in the first place if it wasn't for the Iroquois and giving us the gift of their medicine game," Sonny Campbell, a player for Ireland Lacrosse, tells Morning Edition.
He says the Irish team wanted to do more than make a statement.
So earlier this month, it dropped out of the tournament, allowing the Nationals to take its spot.
"We support them, and if it means we'll give up our spot, then so be it. But the Iroquois, they need to be there," Campbell says.


edit: with typo apologies to my Greek friends

I wonder if the Irish experience with colonialism perhaps makes them more empathic towards the Iroquois.

Good for Ireland. I find it ironic that both the US and Canada have teams in the tournament since both occupy the Iroquois land. It is kinda like Russia taking Ukraine's Olympic spot because it invaded and occupys Crimira.
