Warren made a surprise appearance on Wednesday, addressing allegations that she has lied about her ancestry. Cherokee genealogists including our friend Twila Barnes have traced Warren’s family tree and found no evidence to support her claim of minority status.
Warren has shifted her stance, since being slammed numerous times this year, by Cherokees. She ADMITS she is NOT enrolled, nor her family members on any rolls.
"I get why some people think there’s hay to be made here. You won’t find my family members on any rolls, and I’m not enrolled in a tribe.”
“And I want to make something clear. I respect that distinction. I understand that tribal membership is determined by tribes — and only by tribes.
Warren went on to address the problems in the Native American community and promised that she would share their stories in Congress.
Better LATE than NEVER, right? One writer has it right:
If she didn’t care much about Native American issues before, she does now. A lot. And will until November 3, 2020.
