Warren apologizes for heritage claim, woos Native Americans at Iowa event

Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D., Mass.) presidential campaign removed her DNA test ancestry video on Monday as her campaign attempts to put the issue behind her. "I am sorry for harm that I have caused".

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has removed the infamous DNA test video from her campaign website almost 10 months after it drew scorn from critics across the political spectrum.

The claims - and shaky DNA test results - prompted ridicule and charges that she was trying to advance her career by claiming to be a member of a minority group. "I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we've had together". On a popular clip of "The Breakfast Club" podcast uploaded by The Daily Caller, host Charlamagne Tha God told Warren that she was "kinda like the original Rachel Dolezal", referring to the white former NAACP chapter president who pretended she was African American.

Others outside of the Native American community have also expressed similar skepticism about Warren's alleged past attempt to capitalize on her ancestry.

Last week, Warren detailed a new policy proposal aimed at empowering Native American tribes through land protection and law enforcement reforms and boosting financial support for chronically underfunded health and education programs. "This is about Native American issues, not about a candidate's history".

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

The test showed she had as little as 1/1024th Native American heritage, which would be less than most people descended from Europeans.

Warren posted a front page from the Boston Globe reporting on the test on October 15, 2018, writing: "By the way, President Donald Trump: Remember saying on 7/5 that you'd give $1M to a charity of my choice if my DNA showed Native American ancestry? Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center".

The remarks mark her latest effort to navigate what has been a politically fraught subject dating back to her first run for Senate in 2012. Tribal citizenship is very different from ancestry. Warren later apologized privately to the Cherokee and had addressed her regret before Monday's appearance.

In her State Bar of Texas registration form, Warren listed her race as "American Indian", something that came out earlier this year and renewed the controversy regarding her heritage. "But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted".
