Skip to comments.Elizabeth Warren campaign, challenged on Native American heritage claims
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 were 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 Warrens 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 Universitys 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.

Can she dance a rain dance ?
When I see her tanning a deerhide with brains and piss I’ll believe her.
Is she related to Ward Churchill?
She’s probably going to win.
Now go pay your taxes: your government is broke.
I hope this story keeps on...keeping on...
The progressives I play with on my local newspaper comment sections are Wery -Wery quiet on this....a great smoke signal
[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!!!!
Yup, 6 million a year running a ‘non-profit’. Life’s tough when you’re an apparatchik.
classic, an absolute lib classic
From Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, to Professor Warren, Liberal Academician. I wonder what her Indian name is?
Dances With Communists?
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.
Was there gene thrapy involved here?
I didn’t know shopping at “The Gap” gave you an Indian heritage.
Ugh! white woman speak with forked tongue.
Perhaps, but timing has an awful lot to do with the success of a rain dance.
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.
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.
I know a nice church in Provo that would be more than willing to help Liz verify her native roots.
