Warren Actually Tells The Truth For Once About Her Ancestry
Elizabeth Warren has been claiming that she is Native American for most of her life. But since Trump called her out and she got a DNA test, so charade is up and it appears Warren now is finally accepting that she is not a person of color. She said as much during a Townhall in New Hampshire.
“On Friday, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) held a town hall-style event at a bowling alley in Petersborough, New Hampshire.
During the event, one woman asked Warren the following question about her ancestry: “What do I say to my native american relatives regarding the confusion around the native american ancestry issue?”
I grew up in Oklahoma, and my three older brothers and I learned about our family [the] same way most people do – from our mom and from our dad. My family’s very important to me, and that’s why many years ago I sometimes identified as Native American.
Boston Globe did a big investigation about this, gosh, what about a year and a half ago, never had anything to do with any job I ever got or any benefit.
But even so, I shouldn’t have done it. I am not a person of color; I am not a citizen of a tribe; and I have apologized for confusion I’ve caused on tribal citizenship, tribal sovereignty, and for any harm that I’ve caused.
Watch The Video Below.
This is quite the admission from Elizabeth Warren on previously identifying as Native American:

“Sen. Warren has been dogged by the question regarding her ancestry for years. Even President Trump took to calling the senator “Pocahontas,” and dared her to take a DNA test.
In October 2018, Warren released a video in which she spoke with Stanford Professor Carlos D. Bustamante, who had conducted a DNA analysis on the senator in order to get to the bottom of the heritage question.
According to Bustamante, who “used samples from Mexico, Peru, and Colombia to stand in for Native American” due to a lack of available DNA from verified Native Americans, reports The Boston Globe, Warren had a Native American ancestor “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.”
Warren’s DNA test stunt troubled some in the Native American community.
Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said that the use of “a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong … dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is [proven].”
It’s about time that she finally came to terms with her heritage. I guess now that the spotlight is on her she wants to make sure she at least appears honest.
