Elizabeth Warren campaign, challenged on Native American heritage claims
The Daily Caller ^ | 30 Apr 2012 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 04/30/2012 5:40:49 PM PDT by mandaladon

Massachusetts senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren described herself in law-school professional directories as a Native American minority from 1986 to 1995.

The white Democratic candidate has so far offered no evidence that she is, in fact, part Native American, suggesting that she may have falsified that ethnic credential to advance her academic career in the early affirmative-action era. But “it is true,” a Warren spokeswoman told The Daily Caller on Monday, “and we’re working on digging up some sort of evidence to appease you.”

Another Warren spokeswoman shot back at the campaign of incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown, whom Warren is challenging for the senate seat once held by the late Ted Kennedy.

“If Scott Brown has questions about Elizabeth Warren’s well-known qualifications — from her high marks as a teacher to her nationally recognized work on bankruptcy and the pressures on middle class families — he ought to ask them directly instead of hiding behind the nasty insinuations of his campaign and trying to score political points,” spokeswoman Mindy Myers said in a statement.

Harvard University’s decision to promote Warren as a minority faculty member brought the issue front-and-center, but the Boston Herald reported Monday that Warren described herself that way when she taught at the University of Texas and the University of Pennsylvania.

American law school directories listed Warren as a minority professor for nine years before Harvard scooped her up, and Harvard apparently used that information to promote her as a minority, the Herald first reported Friday.

Warren’s campaign claims she did not know Harvard was promoting her as its law school’s only Native American professor and one of only a handful of “minority” faculty members. She does have Native American blood, the campaign said, but didn’t use that to get her job at Harvard.....................Hard to believe!

[Warren’s] nationally recognized work on bankruptcy and the pressures on middle class families....

Warren has NEGATED all her good work for the middle class by her recent activities....

1. Becoming enamored of Barack Hussein obama, and his program for the destruction of America.

2. Serving as a provisional CZAR in the obama Administration, and lusting to serve as a permanent CZAR. [In reality, the obamaites and their bankster bosses used her as a useful idiot and as a target for conservative wrath, while they were getting away with all they wanted with Dodd-Frank, etc. Later, they got rid of her from the Administration, and passed her on as a Senate candidate instead.]

3. Taking money from SOROS and other banksters for her campaign. Far from being the champion of the American middle class, she is now the tool of their (our) enemies, the Banksters and muslim communists like obama!!!!

Warren should really be referred to as “the woman who used to be Elizabeth Warren!!!!”

If you are a Massachusetts citizen, vote for Scott Brown! Send Warren back to Harvard Law School, so that she can get back down to Earth instead of her obamasphere fantasy!!!!

From Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, to Professor Warren, Liberal Academician. I wonder what her Indian name is?

Dances With Communists?

Shoveling Bull?

Big Chief Frothing Lib?

Well over half of Massachusetts voters are unenrolled (no party affiliation). She may have the democrats safely in her tepee, but most of the independents I know are turned off by her...a lot like they were turned off by Marsha Coakley (whose Indian name is Sees No Democrat Evil). Scott Brown may be a RINO, but he’ll get things right sometimes...Lizzy Warren will get things right NONE of the time.

Popcorn is on, for this sideshow!
ROTFLMAO!

What tribe claims her?
Or did she just watch a “Billy Jack” movie and decide to self-proclaim herself a member? (A lot of that was going around in the 1970s, but it still doesn't mean it was true)

BTW, yes I am a direct descendant of a specific tribe of the Sioux, Blackfoot. Technically, I do qualify for a space on a reservation (aka declared Federal prison encampment) somewhere in North Dakota.
I can easily trace and prove my matrilineal bloodlines, no matter that my grandmother fought to escape, and live her life as a full USA citizen.

It wasn't “cool” for many generations of my family, on that side, not to mention how so many generations of my family on the other side actively hated them.
Something about hundreds of years of wars and genocide and feudal territorial fights that both my grandmothers suffered the physical consequences of, and tried to pass down to mixed breeds of the races.

Hang on Lizzie, if the Indian this doesn’t work out we’re all here working very hard to make marxist morons a minority nationally. They may remain in the majority is Assachusetts but you’ll still be able to claim minority status nationally, even home in Oklahoma.

I mark every official form with Native American.

If someone ask me what Tribe I am from. I tell them when they start asking the Blacks what Tribes they are from then I'll answer.

I've been doing this for over 30 years.

Yes I am NA. But my skin is White.

I have a photograph of my great grandmother taken when she was 95 years old wearing her tribal regalia. She told the family she wanted her picture taken like that in a studio. When the family asked her why, she said, I want all my grandchildren and great grandchildren in the future to know where their heritage came from. Sounds like your family was almost an opposite of this. Too bad as that is how a lot of family Indian traceable heritage has been lost over the years. She passed on that next year at 96 years old.

That would likely be the Standing Rock Reservation, which straddles the North and South Dakota borders, south of the N.D. capital city of Bismarck.

Standing Rock is home to some members of the Blackfoot tribe of the Lakotas, as well as those of the Hunkpapa and Yanktonai tribes (and no doubt others too).

I have known (not well) some of Standing Rock tribal members, as my high school team played against theirs years ago.

They were and are fierce, proud, relentless competitors. Their lives aren’t easy these days, but the name of the Standing Rock Sioux still commands respect of those with any knowledge of them.

It is a pleasure to say hello to you here.

Yeah, too bad.

OTOH, I might look at the seemingly touching story of your great grandmother, and come to the conclusion that all she wanted was for all of her descendants to eternally attempt to avenge the losses of her ancestors.

But then again, in my family, the hatred ran deep on both sides.
My cousins and I decided it was past time for it all to end. And may of us outlived our grandparents, so it did.

You might well see her doing that with a REINDEER hide ~ check out Mari Boine and Elizabeth Warren ~ they look tribal right down to recent ancestry living in tipi type structures ~ but the tribe is probably Northern Sami, Inari or Skolt.

Her family discussions might have been about how so many Indians look like them ~ not the other way around.

Not enough Blackfoots were left alive after the wars, to warrant their own designated tribal reservation/prisons... It was good of the Lakota to accept them.

Some people pretend to forget that long before the white men came, the tribes warred continuously against each other.

It is the nature of mankind, no matter our race.

These things are important ~ except for the family basket weaving business (extant for the last thousand years or so) we were left with a heritage of the words "brogalis" and "amaroogia", a photo of a great grandmother who seemed to be a rather Asiatic looking dwarf ~ along with a ten acre tract of land with the ONLY reindeer moss found in the state of Indiana.

With about 50 years of effort I was able to pin down the very tribe most of them had to originate in ~ and all without immigration records ~ they got here just too darned soon for that.

That photo of great grandmother in tribal regalia will go a long way towards assisting her distant ancestors in getting in touch.

Her maiden name was Herring, so some around here are calling her Red Herring...

Boston TV is reporting that a local geneologist discovered that her great-great-great grandmother was an Indian. Does it justify her minority status? That makes her 1/64 Indian, I think.

I guess if you go back far enough, she was also related to Adam and Eve.

Asked for evidence of her ancestry to back up the candidate’s past statements, a Warren spokeswoman told TheDC on Monday that the campaign is “working on digging up some sort of evidence to appease” inquirers......................I'm sure the Obama people can help her to get some fake proof...like his BC from Hawaii.

The Boston Herald reported Friday that the Warren campaign said the “tales of Warren’s Cherokee and Delaware tribe ancestors have been passed down through family lore.”...............I'm sure that's good enough proof for the moron libs.
