The Haudenosaunee women's national lacrosse team represents the Iroquois Confederacy in international women's lacrosse competitions. They are currently ranked twelfth in the world by the Federation of International Lacrosse.[1]

The first Haudenosaunee female team in 18 years was organized and competed in the 2005 Cup of Nations lacrosse festival. The "First Nations" team was composed of 15- to 18-year-olds and was one of eight international teams. The following year, a women's Iroquois team stood in front of the Six Nations Confederacy Council asking for permission to field an international lacrosse team.[2]

In 2008, the Iroquois Confederacy women's team, under the name Haudenosaunee, became a full member of the Federation of International Lacrosse.
