For years, Elizabeth Warren lied about her Native American heritage, after she was caught lying on a job application at Harvard Law School, by using her phony “Native American” heritage to allegedly to place herself in front of other applicants
After much ridicule by Americans for lying about her “Native American” heritage, including by President Trump, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released DNA results in an effort to prove her claims about her Cherokee heritage. Unfortunately, releasing her DNA actually backfired on the liberal Senator and 2020 Democrat Party presidential candidate, as the results of her DNA test revealed that she’s actually less Indian than the average European-American. Warren DNA test showed that she is possibly 1/1024th Native American.
So Elizabeth Warren is *possibly* 1/1024 (0.09%) Native American.

Now, the Washington Post is reporting that Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that she was sorry that she identified herself as a Native American for almost two decades, reflecting her ongoing struggle to quiet a controversy that continues to haunt her as she prepares to formally announce a presidential bid.
The private apology was earlier reported as focusing more narrowly on a DNA test she took to demonstrate her purported heritage, a move that prompted a ferocious backlash even from many allies. Warren will be vying to lead a party that has become far more mindful of nonwhite voters and their objections to misuse of their culture.
“I can’t go back,” Warren said in an interview with The Washington Post. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”
In addition to the DNA test, she released employment documents over the summer to show she didn’t use ethnicity to further her career. And in a speech a year ago she addressed her decision to call herself a Native American, though she didn’t offer the apology that some wanted at the time.
But as Warren undergoes increased scrutiny as a presidential candidate, additional documents could surface to keep the issue alive.
Using an open records request during a general inquiry, for example, The Post obtained Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, providing a previously undisclosed example of Warren identifying as an “American Indian.”
