AKWESASNE — The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe (SRMT) has donated $100,000 to the Haudenosaunee Nationals to show support for their pursuit of competing internationally, and to help strengthen their goal of making 2028 Summer Olympic Games.
The costs associated with player development, staff, equipment, travel, and lodging poses a challenge: fundraising has become a priority for the organization and home communities.
Both the mens and women’s teams have performed well on the world stage as the men’s team secured 5th position, and the women’s team took 7th overall.
To compete in the 2028 Summer Olympic Games, the Haudenosaunee Nationals will need to secure the needed financial support, as well as place at a World Lacrosse Championship. The Men’s Team had another opportunity to qualify through the 2022 World Lacrosse Men’s U-21 Championship in Limerick, Ireland held in August, where they captured a bronze medal.
