V.A. Shiva, an Indian-born entrepreneur running against Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, recently challenged the senator to submit a DNA test to show that she is Cherokee, as she claims.
In addition to Shiva’s call-to-action, he also published a video with real Cherokee Indians who discussed Warren’s claims, concluding with two brutal words:
In the video, the first Indian says the following:
“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 . . .”
Johanna Martin, one of the last Cherokee Indians featured in the video remarked:
“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.”
John Grant, another Cherokee Indian commented:
“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.”
