"Let them have their story". They're just stories that she's trying to get publicity off of, or she is trying to get sympathy off of, or maybe it's when she was trying to get a job at Harvard.

Indeed, there are sensitive, appropriate ways to talk about potentially having Native American ancestors.

"If Warren thought that this video and DNA test would shut Trump up, she was dangerously mistaken", opined CNN's Chris Cillizza. Harvard's law school bragged about her as a Native American hire. Warren acknowledged that she had listed herself as such in a roster of law professors; when the newspaper asked for documentation, her campaign wasn't able to produce any. Her announcement was greeted with scorn by Cherokee Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr., who wrote: "A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship".

"I have an election", Warren told the editorial board. I wish I had been more mindful of that distinction, ' the Massachusetts Democrat said Wednesday.

Native American tribes have long been skeptical of attempts to collect their DNA. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) showing Native American ancestry. "She's half of that", Mullin noted. And it is backfiring on her.

"What she ends up doing is just doubling down on this".

"Warren might even be less Native American than the average European American", Republican National Committee spokesman Mike Reed said in a statement Monday.

The desire to "belong" to something that isn't part of your heritage is so strong in some politicians who apparently can't live with the fact that they were merely born white. Mr. Rasley's ancestors came to the Massachusettes Bay Colony in the 1600s, he figures that makes him as native American as he needs to be. "This went way too far", Mullin warned. Now Sen. Elizabeth Warren is taking a page from Trump's playbook, hitting back in personal terms and calling him "creepy" on Twitter. Elizabeth Warren's claims of quantitative Native American ancestry make 1988 presidential candidate Michael Dukakis' tank-riding venture look like President Reagan's "tear down this wall" speech.

An American senator's release of a DNA test in defence of her claims to Indigenous ancestry has been met with backlash on social media from Indigenous academics and artists in Canada. Lindsey Graham drew flak after he said his hypothetical DNA test would "probably be Iranian" and added that it would be "terrible".

Yet, Warren felt the need to use her Native American heritage to secure some perceived access and privileges that she thought a minority status confers. "I think she's guilty of claiming she's an American Indian but has no proof - and then [is] using it for applications for college and for political reasons". This decision led her to be named the first woman of color to become a professor at Harvard Law. Elizabeth Warren's claim to Cherokee ancestry.
