For over a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Warren has described herself as a Native American.
After researching her story, it is obvious that her family lore is just fiction.
Ms. Warrens great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Rosss Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennesseethe point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.
These were the troops responsible for removing Cherokee families from homes they had lived in for generations in the three states that the Cherokee Nations had considered their homelands for centuries: Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
While these involuntary home removals were not characterized by widespread violence, the newly displaced Cherokee mothers, fathers, and children found an oppressive and sometimes brutal welcome when they finally arrived at the hastily constructed containment areas. An estimated 4,000 Cherokees were warehoused in Rosss Landing stockades for months awaiting supplies and additional armed guards the Federal Government believed necessary to relocate them on foot to Oklahoma.
It is time for Ms. Warren to publicly acknowledge the truth of her ancestry. It is time for her to admit that she has no Native American heritage that she can prove; and it is time for her to acknowledge instead, that she is likely a direct descendant of a Tennessee Militiaman who apparently rounded up the ancestors of those who truly have Cherokee heritage, the first step in their forced removal from the Southeastern United States to Oklahoma over the long and tragic Trail of Tears.

If she ends up running, Donald will remind the voters at every opportunity that she is indeed Fauxahontas!
It appears this is Fake Injun Squaw’s only claim to fame ( or any news coverage at all)
Fake Indian speak with forked tongue.
Well at least Harvard was able to brag about having a Native American as a professor.
If Harvard had any ethical standards, she would have been fired immediately.
Somebody’s been doing some real excellent research.
My grandmother repeatedly told me that her grandmother was a ‘full blood’ Cherokee... Her family came to MO from Tennessee.. However, unless one was ‘registered’ at that time, one cannot claim Cherokee blood. My father looked enough to be Will Rogers son, talked just like Rogers talked as well. however, this woman was NOT registered. I got an ear full when I called the OK Cherokee nation regarding ancestry... I was not looking for the ‘benefits’ but ancestry. IF Warren’s ancestors were NOT registered then she has NO claim to the Cherokee blood.
Native Americans must ask direct and specific reparations from her lineage!
Tell me a little more about the earful?
Combine shysters and political correctness and Warren is inevitable.
And I hope he uses some of the info from that article in ads.
MA people will always believe her and not Scott Brown.
I wonder just who that could be. I bet I know who! and I bet he has a lot more information about the fake Indian, the Canadian, the Canadian's father and a lot of other people.
Howie Carr is going to be on fire this afternoon with this news about Granny Warren.
