IF her great great grandmother was on the Dawes Rolls then that ancestor was certainly subject to injustice based on race.
She or her parents and/or grandparents would likely have been involved in the forced sale of their lands in the South and their relocation like to Oklahoma.
We shall see.

But if it was part of "family lore" rather than a known and named relative, then the injustice had disappeared into history rather than being something still weighing down on Warren. She should be ashamed of profiting from her ancestors' suffering for claiming that 1/32 relation should help her get a job at Harvard.
