Elizabeth Warren said yesterday she is proud of her Native American heritage and indicated she had no problem with Harvard Law School using her roots to claim her as a diversity hire, but her campaign still could not produce documents proving her lineage.
I am very proud of my Native American heritage, thank you, said Warren when asked if she disapproved of the school counting her as a minority woman on the faculty. These are my family stories ... This is our lives and I am very proud of that.
The Herald reported yesterday that Harvard Law School officials listed Warren as Native American in the 90s, when the school was under fierce fire for their facultys lack of diversity.
Warren, who will likely face off with U.S. Sen. Scott Brown this fall, said she didnt know the school has counted her as a minority faculty member until I read it on the front page of the Herald.
Her campaign said yesterday it is still working to produce documents proving that the 62-year-old Oklahoma native, whose maiden name is Herring, is a descendent of the Delaware and Cherokee tribes.
They said the Delaware Tribe that Warren is from had become assimilated, and because of that there is lax record-keeping.
Warren, who said she was told through family lore that her maternal parents were from the Cherokee and Delaware tribes, said she could not recall ever listing her Native American background when applying for college or a job.
Chris Miller, a secretary with the Delaware Tribe in Oklahoma, said he could not find Elizabeth Herring or Elizabeth Warren listed in the tribes official records.

Send her DNA to one of those dog breed investigation services.
‘I am very proud of the stories told around the kitchen table when I was a child’
She also gives them another diversity point for one more “ugly, arrogant, liberal she-male”.

I too, have a dream. I dream of a day where any person will be able to get a job, not by virtue of the color of his skin, the happenstances of his heritage; but by the content of their experiences, their qualifications and ability to do the job.
“Send her DNA to one of those dog breed investigation services.”
so Warren says she can not remember telling anyone at harvard her’ family story”
harvard just out of the blue decided she had high cheekbones and must be indian?
This proves for sure Warren is NOT
She speaks with a forked tongue
Elizabeth Warren has no “reservations” about tribal status?
Is this headline hinting about Indians who live on reservations?
Who the heck writes these headlines? Is this mention of “reservations” supposed to be a play on words????
I fell prey to it myself - thinking my paternal great grandmother was half Blackfoot based upon “family lore”.
Then I saw a picture of my paternal Grandfather's mother - and she was about as German looking a Fraulein as I had ever seen.
But I guess I have as much evidence as Warren - better count me as a “minority hire”!
What a crock!
As I recall. Two Boston Fire Fighters were fired for faux Indians.
The Cherkee kept very good records. I am only 1/64 & can trace back to 1750. If her family didn’t enroll or were not on any Indian census she most definitely is not qualified to be a diversity hire, no matter how many stories she heard!

She should start calling herself Crazy Bitch or Slinging Bull.
Exactly. I am as white as a bleached sheet and there is family lore in my family that my grandmother's grandmother was an Indian. Maybe she was, but for me to claim to be one is PC silliness. Warren is making an even bigger fool of herself in doing this than she already has with her positions.
Does “Hippie” count as “Native American”?
Everyone is part Cherokee. Just ask them.
