“Happy Columbus Day, Chief!” Self Proclaimed Native American Warren Gets Mocked For Celebrating “Indigenous Peoples Day”

Hollis, NH - September 27, 2019: Democratic 2020 U.S. presidential candidate and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren campaigns at Lawrence Barn in Hollis, New Hampshire.

On Monday, Senator Elizabeth Warren who is better known as “Pocahontas” celebrated “Indigenous Peoples’ Day,” which was immediately met with mockery considering Warren once self-identified herself to be a Native American.

Warren tweeted, “It’s time the federal government also honors its promises to Native people,” as she tweeted, “I’m glad to stand with tribal nations and Native communities as we celebrate their remarkable contributions, cultures, and resilience on #IndigenousPeoplesday. It’s time the federal government also honors its promises to Native peoples.”

Warren has identified herself as a Native American in the past to further her career and receive leniency when it came to college positions.

“Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it,” The Washington Post reported while referring to how Warren claimed American Indian ancestry when applying for the State Bar of Texas. “Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.”

“The Texas bar registration card is significant, among other reasons, because it removes any doubt that Warren directly claimed the identity,” the Post added. “In other instances, Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.”

The biggest embarrassment to Warren came in 2019 when she dropped her DNA test which showed that she had as little as 1/1024 Native American in her blood. A total scam and liar.

Cherokee Nation spokeswoman Julie Hubbard spoke out about the revelation and her conversation with Warren after the results came to light.

“I understand that she apologized for causing confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and the harm that has resulted,” Hubbard said. “The chief and secretary of state appreciate that she has reaffirmed that she is not a Cherokee nation citizen or a citizen of any tribal nation.”

“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” said Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. in a statement. “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.”

In February of 2020, 200+ members of the Cherokee Nation and other Native American tribes blasted Warren:

Your history of false claims to American Indian identity and the defense of these claims with a highly publicized DNA test continue to dog your political career. For Native Americans, this moment is more than an annoyance; it represents the most public debate about our identity in a generation. In a country where Indigenous people are mostly invisible, what Americans conclude from this debate will impact Native rights for years to come…

When you still defend yourself by stating you believed what you heard growing up, you set a harmful example for these white people stealing Native identity and resources with stories very similar to your own …
