Democrat Elizabeth Warren Woos Native American Voters

Did Elizabeth Warren Remove Her Bogus DNA Test Video Before Speaking to a Native American Forum

Elizabeth Warren came under fire past year after she released the results of a DNA test as evidence of her Native American ancestry.

Last week, New Mexico Congresswoman Deb Haaland, who has endorsed Warren for president, announced the two would co-sponsor the Honoring Promises to Native Nations Act, legislation that would address funding shortfalls outlined in a December 2018 report by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights titled "Broken Promises". "I was saying 'I'm not her!' but I could have been saying 'Medicare for all!'" The results of the DNA test show that if she did indeed have a Native American relative, Warren would be anywhere from 1/64th to 1/1,024th Native American.

Oyen says she eventually ditched the blue blazer and the glasses and "hid behind a tall guy" because she felt sorry for confusing people. "I am sorry for the harm I have caused".

To some in the audience at a Monday night rally in Minnesota for Elizabeth Warren, there appeared to be two blue blazer-wearing presidential candidates in attendance.

"Like anyone who has been honest with themselves, I know I have made mistakes", she said.

After drawing a standing ovation, Warren said "I have listened and I have learned a lot" from conversations with Native Americans in recent months, describing herself as "grateful" for the dialogue.

The video championing Warren's DNA results, meanwhile, was removed from YouTube and her website by Warren's team, prompting ridicule from GOP communications director Michael Ahrens. However, 44 percent of poll respondents also believe that Warren would "probably lose" an election against President Trump.

After Warren's session, Aric Armell, who came to Sioux City from his home in Winnebago, Nebraska, where he is an enrolled tribal member, said the forum was just a beginning.

"Every time they asked about Elizabeth's family instead of the issues of vital importance to Indian country, they feed the President's racism", Haaland said.

"I thought it would get some giggles", said the Edina resident. Warren later apologized privately to the Cherokee and had addressed her regret before Monday's appearance.

Warren said she did so because of family stories that she had Cherokee and DE ancestry, but critics accused her of lying to advance her prospects, even though there has been no evidence she benefited professionally.

If elected president, Warren pledged to ensure that tribes would not only be consulted about planned projects but can make informed decisions about whether they should proceed.

"I'm not a prankster", she said.

"That's accepted. That's old news", said Funmaker, a Republican who used to work for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Even a few staffers with Warren's campaign did a double take when they glimpsed Oyen. "I want one that works for our families", she told the crowd.
