The Cherokee Nation called Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s use of a DNA test to justify her claim of Native American ancestry “inappropriate” on Monday.

“A DNA test useless to determine tribal citizenship,” the Cherokee Nation said in a statement released Monday. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation.”
They added, “Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens.”
The Gateway Pundit reports,
Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren released a DNA study Monday that claims she is 1/1,024 Native America. That’s 0.009765625.
The average white person in America has nearly double the amount of American Indian DNA (0.18%) as Elizabeth Warren (0.098%), who claims to be Cherokee.
Elizabeth Warren made up all kinds of elaborate stories in an effort to bolster her claims she is Native American.
Warren claimed her parents had to elope because her father’s parents were racist and didn’t approve of their son’s Cherokee girlfriend.
Senator Warren also previously claimed her Pawpaw’s high cheekbones were proof she is of Native American descent.
None of these outrageous claims and stunts pass muster with the Cherokee Nation–Elizabeth Warren is a fraud.
Warren released the results of a DNA test over the weekend that revealed she is between 0.09 and 1.5 percent Native American and has at least one Native American ancestor between 6 and 10 generations back.
Warren has repeatedly been criticized by political opponents for allegedly lying about being Native American.
