Elizabeth Warren Celebrates 'Real' Pocahontas and Denounces US Treatment of Native Americans

15 February 2018

"If Elizabeth Warren wants to be president of the United States, the call for full transparency will only grow louder", Kingston added.

"Elizabeth Warren's speech today distracts from an issue she has never addressed: did she claim to be a member of a Native American tribe in order to obtain preferential consideration for employment at Harvard University, as well as in all her academic positions prior to that?" he said.

It's beyond dispute that Trump disrespects Native Americans, but Elizabeth Warren is the last person on Earth who should be defending them.

In her most expansive public remarks on her ancestry, Warren told the Native American group that she respects the distinction between Native American heritage and membership in a tribe. Cherokee genealogists have traced Warren's family tree and found no evidence to support her claim of minority status.

"We have a president who can't make it through a ceremony honoring Native American war heroes without reducing native history, native culture, native people to the butt of a joke", Warren said.

The senator, who claims partial Native American heritage, explained her family's background in the speech, saying that her mother's family was part Native American and that she eloped with Warren's father because his family did not approve of their relationship.

She went on to address the problems in the Native American community and promised that she would share their stories in Congress.

Warren said the story her parents lived "will always be a part of me". She had claimed to be part Cherokee.

Trump's Pochantas attack gave Warren the opening to talk about her own family and upbringing.

"And I want to make something clear", Warren continued.

Nor do any of her known ancestors appear on the Dawes Rolls, an official list of members of the Cherokee, Chocktaw, Creek, Chickasaw, and Seminole tribes compiled by the federal government in the early 20th century. "I've noticed that every time my name comes up, President Trump likes to talk about Pocahontas", she said.

Boston Globe reporter Matt Viser tweeted that Warren received a standing ovation, and that the National Congress of American Indians' president shouted "We've got your back!" Diehl questioned. "This is another media stunt by Warren to gain national exposure for her presidential run".

Each time, she said, "someone brings up my family's story, I'm going to use it to lift up the story of your families and your communities".

"For far too long, your story has been pushed aside, to be trotted out only in cartoons and commercials", she said.

The climber wasn't rescued from the mountain until around 1 p.m. when a Black Hawk helicopter was able to make it to the area. One of the climbers in the lower group was injured, but the injuries were not thought to be life-threatening, he said.

Trump longs for the halcyon days when Blacks picked cotton, Latinos toiled in the fields, Chinese laid down railroad tracks, and Native Americans were confined to their reservations. On President Trump's supposed personal contribution to that "violence", Warren said, "It is deeply offensive that this president keeps a portrait of Andrew Jackson hanging in the Oval Office, honoring a man who did his best to wipe out native people".
