Pocahontas descendant: Elizabeth Warren should 'apologize' for Native American ancestry claims

A descendant of legendary Native American Pocahontas has called on Senator Elizabeth Warren to apologize for her claims of being of Cherokee ancestry.

Earlier this week, Warren released the results of a DNA Test to “prove” she’s Native American, though the results have been widely mocked.

The report shows that Warren is between 1/64th and 1/1024th% Native American, and her closest Native family member existed between 6 and 10 generations ago!

Pocahontas descendant Debbie White Dove Porreco told Fox News how she and other Native Americans feel about the results, “I think they feel betrayed, they feel disappointed, and at this point she needs to come back and apologize to everybody for what she’s done.”

And, President Donald Trump had plenty to say on Twitter, tweeting:

"Elizabeth Warren is being hammered, even by the Left. Her false claim of Indian heritage is only selling to VERY LOW I.Q. individuals!"

In a statement, Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin, Jr. said Warren’s DNA test, “dishonors legitimate tribal governments and citizens whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

In a Tweet, Warren herself called on Donald Trump to make good on his pledge of a $1M donation to Warren if her claims of Native American heritage were ever proven, saying:

"Millions of people watched you, @realDonaldTrump, as you fumbled and lied on your $1 million pledge. It then took a day for your handlers to tee up this recycled racist name-calling. You’ve lost a step, and in 21 days, you’re going to lose Congress."

Warren is currently running for re-election to the Senate in Massachusetts and is looked at as a possible 2020 presidential candidate.
