Real Cherokees Challenge Fauxcahontas

Legal Insurrection reports that members of the Cherokee Nation, the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians, and the United Keetoowah Band of the Cherokee Indians are challenging Elizabeth Warren’s claim to tribal ancestry.

They are not amused by her bogus claim.

We have researched Ms. Warren’s ancestry in the line she claims to be Cherokee through, as well as researched the collateral lines connected to that family. There is absolutely no indication of her having anything other than Caucasian ancestors…. Ms. Warren’s ancestors were not Cherokees and neither is she. We, as Cherokees, cannot allow Ms. Warren to continue on with her false claims…..
It is time for Ms. Warren to come clean and tell the truth. Until she does, we will not be silenced.

Read the whole thing. There’s a link to the Cherokee’s research of Ms. Warren’s genealogy.

I will say this once again: Even though my family roots are in East Tennessee and one of my grandmothers was born in Oklahoma, I have no known ancestors from the Cherokee or any other tribe. So far as I can tell, all of my immigrant ancestors other than one German great-grandmother were from the British Isles.
