Native American Journalist Demolishes Warren's DNA Test in Op-Ed Piece

Native Americans also resented Trump's continuing use of Indian heritage as a means to mock Warren, a Democratic senator from MA who is widely expected to run for president in 2020.
Nobody was more critical of Ms. Warren's decision to trumpet her DNA results than the Cherokee Nation, which made it clear that genetic testing does not prove ancestry under tribal law and accused her of "undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage". "Now Cherokee Nation denies her, 'DNA test is useless.' Even they don't want her. Phony!"
"If she gets the nomination in the debate where I was going to have her tested", Trump said. "They singled her out, Warren later acknowledged, because she had listed herself as a minority in an Association of American Law Schools directory".
"So I guess she really is Native American after all".
"You're going to find out in a couple weeks", Graham said.
"The identity of the sample donor, Elizabeth Warren, was not known to the analyst during the time the work was performed", the report said.
"She's showing that she can play offense as well as defense, and she won't be bullied by the president and that she'll also taunt him with these results", said Tufts University political science professor Jeff Berry on WBUR-FM in Boston.
"I'm not enrolled in a tribe, and only tribes determine tribal citizenship", Warren said in the video.

An ancestor six generations removed would make Warren 1/64th Native American while an ancestor as much as 10 generations removed would render the Massachusetts Democrat only 1/1024th Native American, according to Blaine Bettinger, a genealogist and author who specializes in DNA evidence. "I have a feeling she will say 'no'".
Trump, who refers to Warren as "Pocahontas", seized on the conclusion in a series of tweets Tuesday.
Trump gleefully incorporated the statement into his tweets at the MA senator, saying on Tuesday: "Now Cherokee Nation denies her, 'DNA test is useless.' Even they don't want her. Phony!" She used her claim of American Indian heritage for professional and personal gain.
Some Democrats have also criticized Warren's timing on releasing the report - just weeks before the midterm elections on November 6, when the party hopes to capitalize on a backlash against Trump to make inroads into the GOP's majorities in Congress. If we give Warren the benefit of the doubt and say she's a full 1.6% Native American, this would mean that the average black person in America is 12.5 times more white than Elizabeth Warren is Native American.
It's obvious to anyone with eyes in their sockets or brains in their heads: because Warren needs our stamp of approval and our vote as she contemplates a potential presidential run.
"I'll only do it if I can test her personally", he said. "It's like the Kool-Aid Man saying, "I don't actually care about Kool-Aid.' No no no no no - you jumped through my f*uckin" wall because you were that excited that I was maybe doing to drink Kool-Aid, and now I have to call a contractor to fix this sh*t".
Despite putting Warren once again on defense, the furor over the DNA test serves to deal with the hard subject well before the potential launch of a widely expected 2020 presidential run.
