Elizabeth Warren claims Native American roots, skips Harvard Powwow By Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa with Megan Johnson Tuesday, May 8, 2012 - Updated 3 hours ago
Senatorial wannabe Elizabeth Warren, aka Fauxcahontas, said she listed herself as a minority in law school directories because she was hoping to meet others with Native American roots. So isnt it a shame that Liz took a pass on last weekends 17th annual Harvard Powwow????
The Harvard Law School prof was campaigning on the North Shore last Saturday while Harvards Native American Program filled Radcliffe Yard with Native American singers, dancers and drummers.
The Harvard Powwow ... is a great way to bring local tribes into the Harvard community, acknowledging the ancestral homelands, and show our heritage, Cesar Alvarez 13, the incoming president of Native Americans at Harvard College, told the Harvard Gazette.
Warren, who is running against Sen. Scott Brown, has been taking heavy political flak since it was revealed she claimed to be a minority based on family lore about ancestors from the Cherokee and Delaware tribes. However, Warrens campaign has been unable to provide any proof of her Native American ties.
And although Warren claims she never used her purported heritage when applying for jobs, she did list herself as a minority in The American Association of Law Schools directory, which administrators have used to seek diversity job candidates.
I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group, something that might happen with people who are like I am, Warren told the Herald. Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it, and so I stopped checking it off.

She is a little “IINO”
Indian In Name Only.
Elizabeth Warren is black.
George Zimmerman is white.
Welcome to Obamaland. :)
Running Cheekbones heap big liar!
Correction: Elizabeth Warren is red.
Scott Brown has to be sitting and just amazed how this race flipped on a dime and Warren looks like an idiot. If this had come out in December....they’d still have time to find a replacement. Right now...you just can’t replace her.
And for future job opportunity....I just can’t see her hired for some professor job. Her entire Harvard status is worthless at this point. “Chief” Warren is finished.
There is an “immigration lawyer” named Marisa DeFranco running in the Dem primary but I think she will need to get 15 per cent at the state conv to get on the primary ballot.
Of course the big money and the Dem politicians are
solidly behind Warren
>>She may not have as much campaign cash as her competitors, but Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Marisa DeFranco is one of the last women standing in a field once dominated by several notable Massachusetts politicians.
DeFranco, a federal immigration attorney vying for her party’s nod to take on Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown in November’s general election, racked up $9,074 in contributions in the first quarter of 2012, ending the period with $8,080 cash-on-hand, according to the Federal Election Commission.
DeFranco’s Democratic competitor, consumer advocate and fundraising juggernaut Elizabeth Warren, brought in $6.9 million from January through March compared to Brown who hauled $3.4 million in contributions.
DeFranco, who considers herself the “only true political outsider left in the race,” said that she plans to keep on fighting to the Democratic Primary in September. But to do so, she needs to collect 10,000 certified signatures and have them submitted by 5 p.m. on May 8.
Whomever came up with that should be given a reward.
I first heard it from Mark Steyn, he of fertile mind.
In more ways than one.
More like INEIN—Indian Not Even In Name.
Yes, that sounds like a Steyn-ism.
You are probably correct.
Rich white liberal females who lie about belonging to a victim group?
Of course she used her phony minority status to get her teaching position, and Harvard should admit it.
C'mon Harvard. Fess up. Where's that "Veritas" spirit these days?
