This will make some people so angry they could just spit but Fauxahontas, Senator Elizabeth Warren won’t be one of them—well, if she spits—it won’t be into one of those DNA kits. On Wednesday evening Tucker Carlson interviewed Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes, who proved that Elizabeth Warren has as much Cherokee blood in her as does Kim Jung Un and my Russian grandparents.
Ms. Barnes told Carlson that Warren is not of Cherokee heritage and is “not enrolled” with the tribe. She also said that he “sob story” about her parents having to elope because of her father’s parents objections to her mother’s Cherokee background (or for any other reason) is most likely baloney also.
Of her claims of Cherokee ancestry, the genealogist said what was already known, “She’s not enrolled, she has no family on the rolls. She has no indication of Indian ancestry anywhere in her lineage.”
Barnes gave provides details into of Warren’s genealogy on her website,Polly’s Granddaughter:
The three Cherokee Indian nations who have government to government relationships with the United States have said Warren is not Cherokee. That should have been the end of it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t.
The genealogy of Warren has been done and shows no indication of Cherokee, Delaware, or any other Indian nation ancestry. The genealogy along with the fact no legitimate Indian nation claims her should have been the end of it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t.
Even more importantly Ms. Barnes says that a DNA test won’t help because the Cherokees are a nation and citizenship isn’t determined by DNA:
In closing, I’d like to reiterate that DNA does not, in any way, determine who is or is not considered Native American. There is no DNA test that can determine that. Indian nations determine citizenship just like the United States determines who is American. Americans would never dream of requesting someone get a DNA test to prove they are American. Instead, they might ask to see one’s proof or documentation of citizenship in the United States. We in Indian Country understand that. We wish Americans could give our Indian nations the same respect. We are not a race of people that can simply take a DNA test and show we are citizens of one of the various tribes throughout the US. We are citizens of nations and the way we prove it is the exact same way Americans prove they are citizens of the U.S. We provide documentation
But Twila Barnes really ripped Warren’s tale about how her racist paternal grandparents objected to her parents’ wedding because of her mother’s Cherokee blood and they were forced into eloping…
