    President Trump mocked U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee heritage claims again last week with an offer of $1 million to the charity of her choice if a DNA test proves her right. Trump made the rambling taunt at a Montana rally. “I’m gonna get one of those kits and in the middle of the debate when she proclaims that she’s of Indian heritage, because her mother says she has high cheekbones, that’s her only evidence that her mother said she has high cheekbones. We will take that little kit, and say, but we have to do it gently because we’re...

    President Donald Trump escalated a familiar attack on Sen. Elizabeth Warren Thursday night, mocking the Massachusetts Democrat and leading potential 2020 rival for her claim of Native American heritage. He revived his nickname for her — "the fake Pocahontas" — and told the crowd at his Montana campaign rally that should the two find themselves on a debate stage, he would challenge her to submit to genetic testing to prove that she has Native American ancestors. "I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren sought Sunday to bolster her shaky claims of Cherokee ancestry with the story of how her racist grandparents drove her parents to elope. But Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes says that account has its own credibility issues. Ms. Barnes, who said her research into Ms. Warren's family found "no evidence" of Native American ancestry, has challenged key elements of the senator's tale of how her parents, Pauline Reed and Donald Herring, defied his parents by running off to marry. [Snip] After Ms. Warren said in the Globe that her mother told her "nobody came to her wedding at...
  • Brown U Prof: Elizabeth Warren "Complicit in Racism" Against Native Americans

    The Social Memo ^ | 3/30/17 | Aurelius
    Dr. Adrienne Keene, a professor at Brown University and a person of Native American decent, argued last week that Senator Elizabeth Warren is "complicit in racism" against Native Americans. According to Professor Keene, after being attacked as a "fake" Native American, Senator Warren never once "turned the conversation to actual NA issues in Massachusetts." Instead, Ms. Warren defended herself, obtaining "liberal pity," but never did anything to actually help native people. "She's complicit in the racism w/her continued silence," Dr. Keene argued: Dr. Keene argued that nicknames given to Senator Warren suggesting a native heritage don't hurt her because "she's...
  • Report: Elizabeth Warren’s ancestor may have … rounded up Cherokee for Trail of Tears

    Out: Elizabeth Warren, Native American. In: Elizabeth Warren, Jacksonian Democrat. Man, in hindsight it’s a good thing she didn’t attend the annual Harvard Powwow yesterday after all, huh? Awwwk-ward. "As I pointed out in my article here on Sunday, no evidence supports this claim [that her great-great-great grandmother was Cherokee]. O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford had no Cherokee heritage, was listed as “white” in the Census of 1860, and was most likely half Swedish and half English, Scottish, or German, or some combination thereof. (Note, the actual 1894 marriage license makes no claim of Cherokee ancestry.)" "But the most stunning discovery...

    ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) - Asheville Police said they detained a person of interest after an explosive device was found at the Asheville Regional Airport. Michael Christopher Estes, 46, was detained Saturday morning along Airport Road after federal authorities said a tipster recognized him. Authorities told FOX Carolina that a suspicious device was found on a curb outside the airport's baggage claim area Friday morning. Police later confirmed the package was, in fact, explosive and had been rendered safe by the bomb squad. The airport was briefly evacuated, but the terminal reopened just before 9 a.m. The FBI released a statement about...

    A Georgia teacher who told students in her math class that are not allowed to wear “Make America Great Again” T-shirts because the campaign slogan was akin to a swastika, will no longer be teaching in the classroom. Lyn Orletsky was seen on a viral video telling at least two River Ridge High School students in Cherokee County that wearing the slogan made popular during President Donald Trump’s 2016 was like wearing the symbol of Nazism, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The Cherokee County School District, quickly released an apology and said that the students were not in any...

    It’s wrong to pre-judge a human being based on their racial characteristics. Beyond that, it’s stupid. Any marginally intelligent person knows this. A Christian, certainly, has no excuse for treating someone badly simply because they are of a different racial category. For a Catholic, it's a sin to do so. At the same time, as we watch political agitators wantonly destroying symbols of our country’s history in vigilante mobs, one can not help but be struck by their profound ignorance of said history. For these simpletons, the Confederacy equals racism, and everything having to do with it equals racism, and...

    The sign on the podium read “Stronger Together” — but a more apt slogan would have been “Awkward Together.” The Warren/Clinton spectacle in Cincinnati yesterday was downright surreal, beginning with their matching blue outfits. At first glance it appeared as though a Pan Am flight crew had gotten lost. Elizabeth Warren went full oddball, repeatedly clapping her floppy seal arms, before thrusting them upward in what looked like a sign a phantom field goal had sailed through the uprights.

    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. Warren’s 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 Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee–the 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...

    Say what you want about Donald Trump, but he has an instinctive knack for zeroing in on an opponent's inherent weakness. With Jeb, it was "low energy." That term exploited a key perception problem of Jeb, and one he couldn't shake. So to did "Little Marco," which may have ended not only Marco Rubio's presidential campaign, but his political career . . . More heavyweights are jumping in to stomp Trump, including Elizabeth Warren. Asked about her jabs, he pounced: "I think it's wonderful because the Indians can now partake in the future of the country. She's got about as...

    The Cherokee Nation is denouncing scholar-activist Andrea Smith for falsely claiming to be a member of the tribe. Beyond untrue, the ethnic fraud is a painful reminder of their past. “I have always been, and will always be Cherokee.” This is University of California, Riverside professor Andrea Smith’s official response to recent allegations that she is not Cherokee, an identity that she has claimed throughout her decades-long career as a prominent figure in Native American scholarship and activism. In a blog post on Thursday night, Smith maintained that she is Cherokee, that she has “consistently identified [herself] based on what...

No, I hate ATMs because I know when I swipe my card, when the machine dispenses pieces of my livelihood, I have to see that face. His face. On the $20 bill.

    Judaculla Rock website ^ | 2002-2014 | Presented by L.E.M.U.R.
    Deep in the mountains of Jackson County, just outside Sylva, North Carolina, sets a large, baffling stone. It is a soapstone boulder, and it's covered with a plethora of strange drawings that some archaeologists believe may be 2,000 to 3,000 years old. Even the Cherokee Indians consider the site ancient, pre-dating their presence in the area... According to Cherokee legend, the markings on the rock were created by Judaculla, a slant-eyed giant who dominated the mountains in years long past. He was the "Great Lord of the hunt," a powerful being who could leap from one mountain to another, and...

Research team members have known the location of burial sites of Madoc's close relatives in Wales for some time, it emerged today; but they have decided to break their self-imposed silence in order that their research be fully known and...

    The state Republican convention in Cherokee is still lacking that big national headliner; some 1,200 to 1,400 people are expected in Jackson County June 5-7, and organizers are feeling the pressure. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, the Tea Party darling from Texas, turned down an opportunity to speak in North Carolina because he’ll be attending his state’s convention. Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor, wanted $15,000 to secure his presence, an engagement fee North Carolina officials aren’t prepared to pay. “We don’t have that kind of money,” Ralph Slaughter, chairman of the Jackson County Republican Party, said last night during a county...

    According to one legend, the berry has been a force of nature since the beginning of time.The Cherokees have a creation myth that connects human harmony and the configuration of heaven and Earth to the sight of a single strawberry. The cosmic details are murky. But the culinary message is clear. Abbreviated, it goes like this: First Man and First Woman (think Cherokee Adam and Eve) have a blowout argument, after which First Woman proclaims: “You are lazy and pay no attention to me. I am going to find another place to live.” With that, she harrumphs off with that...
