Cherokee Nation rejects Elizabeth Warren, says DNA test was 'inappropriate,' 'wrong'




The Cherokee Nation has rejected Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and called her out for using a DNA test in a feeble attempt to claim that she is Native American. The results of her test concluded that she is only a possible 1/1024 Native American, at best, which is reportedly less than the normal European American.

Carlos Bustamante, an expert in DNA and professor at Stanford administered the test. His results showed that Warren might have an ancestor who is at least six to 10 generations back, which puts her at a range of a possible 1/32nd and 1/1024 chance of having some American Indian in her bloodline.

Warren has been criticized heavily on social media after releasing the results of her DNA test which show that no, she is not Native American.

Warren has doubled down on her claim, stating that President Trump must pay on a promise that he made back on July 5th. Trump said he would pay $1,000,000 to the charity of her choice if she took the test AND it proved that she was an Indian. She took the test, but it proves that she is not an Indian. She still demands the money, but Trump's response to her was "who cares?"

The Cherokee Nation wasn't happy with her using the DNA test in hopes to claim some sort of connection. The Cherokee Nation made a statement that spoke out against Elizabeth Warren.

“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. “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.”
Hoskin accused Warren of “undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
He argued that DNA tests fail to distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America and noted that tribes set their own legal requirements for citizenship.

The brief statement from the Cherokee Nation was:


TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. issued the following statement Monday in response to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test claiming Native Heritage:
"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 Hoskin 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. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage."

An indigenous writer, organizer, and member of the Cherokee Nation also spoke out against Warren.


“No native tribe acknowledges DNA testing as a source for citizenship or even claim to native heritage,” said Rebecca Nagle, an indigenous writer, organizer and citizen of the Cherokee Nation.
“She comes from a well-documented line of white people and so there is ample evidence that all of her ancestors are documented white people on the census rolls, by their marriage and birth and death certificates since going back before the Trail of Tears,” she added, referring to the forced migration of Native Americans to west of the Mississippi in the 1830s.
Nagle said many people who are non-Native have family stories about American Indian heritage “and the overwhelming amount of those stories are false and not based in identity but rather are based in a white entitlement to appropriate native land, native culture and native identity.” 



President Trump had fun with Warren's false claims to be Indian. He referred to her as 'Pocahontas' and called her a 'total fraud.'
