BIG REMINDER: Elizabeth Warren Lied About Her Cherokee Heritage

The media is currently in a frenzy over President Trump recent rip on Elizabeth Warren, calling her “Pocahontas” during a ceremony honoring Navajo Code Talkers.

Warren is lashing out at Trump calling the term a “racial slur,” but it’s simply just a nickname Warren earned when she lied about her Cherokee heritage to advance her political career.

Not only was Warren’s mother listed as “white” on her death certificate, but there were a number of marriage announcements for her parents in local papers, suggesting they did not elope as Warren claimed.

Warren’s next dubious piece of “proof” is that her Aunt Bea would point to her family members having “high cheekbones like all of the Indians do.”


Besides the odd assertion that “high cheekbones” can prove that someone is Native American, Aunt Bea was also identified as “white” on her death certificate.

In another interview, Warren asserted that she had photos around her house proving her ancestry, but would not show them to reporters.

“I have plenty of pictures–they’re not for you,” she said.


Warren’s ridiculous claims about her heritage became a flashpoint in her campaign for governor of Massachusetts, and a number of Cherokees slammed her for trying to co-opt their heritage. Here’s a Cherokee genealogist striking down Warren’s so-called “ancestry.”


Let’s not forget that Warren also contributed five recipes to a “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook in 1984, but at least two of the recipes appeared to be plagiarized. The New York Times story in 1979 indicated that the recipes originated from Le Pavilion, a French restaurant in Manhattan.
