The Cherokee Nation spoke out towards Senator Elizabeth Warren privately apologizing to them for claiming her heritage of being of Cherokee descendent by DNA tests.
Julie Hubbard, the tribe’s executive director of communications stated,“We are encouraged by this dialogue and understanding that being a Cherokee Nation tribal citizen is rooted in centuries of culture and laws not through DNA tests.
She also follows this by mentioning,”We are encouraged by her action and hope that the slurs and mockery of tribal citizens and Indian history and heritage will now come to an end.” Which could be a reference to President Trump’s remark of Warren by calling her Pocahontas due to her heritage claims.
Elizabeth Warren has been preparing for her presidential run and after Trump called her out for lying about her heritage so, she sought to get a DNA test to prove her heritage but it ended up in failure and offending The Cherokee Nation.
