Sen. Elizabeth Warren has been pretending to be a Native American for years.
Long ago, she lied about being a Native American in order to gain a favorable position at a major American college.
V.A. Shiva, an Indian-born entrepreneur, recently called on Warren to prove her ancestry by conducting a DNA test.
Now, Cherokee Indians have started bashing Warren for insulting their heritage with her lies.
“Elizabeth Warren, being someone that has a professorship should have some type of ethics. How can you trust a person like that? If they’re willing to lie about themselves and where they’re from and who they are, you know? My name is Dale French, I was born and raised here on the Cherokee Indian reservation, and I just don’t approve of that ,” said French.
“That’s not right at all, she’s lying to the American public by running for public office and claiming a race that she’s not. If she’s claiming that she’s Native American, prove it,” said Cherokee Indian John Grant.
“In a way it feels like they’re making fun of our heritage because they don’t have any realization of what we went through as a people,” said Cherokee Indian Johanna Martin.

Warren has been pushing this lie for too long. It is about time that she admitted the truth and stopped shaming proud Native Americans.
