Four outraged Cherokee activists who say Elizabeth Warrens campaign has ignored their emails and phone calls will trek to Boston this week in hopes they can force a meeting with the Democratic Senate candidate over her offensive Native American heritage claims.
Its almost becoming extremely offensive to us, said Twila Barnes, a Cherokee genealogist who has researched Warrens family tree. Were trying to get in contact and explain why her behavior hurts us and is offensive, and she totally ignores that. Like we dont exist.
Late last night, a Warren campaign official told the Herald that staffers will connect and offer to have staff meet with them.
We would like to see her look at the documentation and admit theres no Indian ancestry there and then apologize, Barnes saud.

“Sure, chief. Come in and make an appointment with my staff flunkies.”

Can it be that Fauxahontas is getting “Swift-canoed”?

She’s circling the wagons. She’s white.
You know America has gone into the toilet when we can’t name football teams after Indians but we can name DemocRAT politicians after them.
Watch for the Warren camp to counter with their own “Registered Indian” supporters, who will state, “Who cares about this nonsense? Elizabeth will fight for working class families bla bla bla...”
Do they all have high cheekbones?
Was reading the posts at The Boston Herald link and one of them referred to her as “Lie-awatha”. Now that right there is a belly funny.....
Swift canoed! ROFL
When are you going to begin to start to commence to prepare to be offended?
I've also heard her called "Crockagawea."
This "Indian" was really a white guy named Tony Corti, who the environmentalists who made the "Crying Indian" commercial decided was a better match for the part than a "genuine" Indian...
