Cherokee Nation responded to Elizabeth Warren’s latest stunt attempting to prove she is of Native American descent.
This didn’t go well…
“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskins Jr. Said. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation.”
“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven,” the statement said.
The end of the statement torched Elizabeth Warren.
“Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.” OUCH!
Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren released a DNA study Monday that claims she is 1/1,024 Native America. That’s 0.0009765625.
The average white person in America has nearly double the amount of American Indian DNA (0.18%) as Elizabeth Warren (0.098%), who claims to be Cherokee.
Elizabeth Warren made up all kinds of elaborate stories in an effort to bolster her claims she is Native American.
Warren claimed her parents had to elope because her father’s parents were racist and didn’t approve of their son’s Cherokee girlfriend.
Senator Warren also previously claimed her Pawpaw’s high cheekbones were proof she is of Native American descent.
None of these outrageous claims and stunts pass muster with the Cherokee Nation–Elizabeth Warren is a fraud.
