WATCH: Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren Gets Called Out by Cherokee Indians About Her Heritage: ‘Prove It’

V.A. Shiva, an Indian-born entrepreneur and scientist, recently publicly challenged Elizabeth Warren to submit a DNA test to prove that she is Cherokee as she has so frequently claimed.

President Donald Trump has nicknamed Warren, “Pocahontas” in response to her claims to be Native American. On top of V.A. Shiva’s call to action, which you can watch below, he also put a video up with a handful of Cherokee Indians commenting on the disrespect they feel due to Warren’s lies or exaggerations of her heritage.

One of the first speakers brings up a number of good points:

“Elizabeth Warren, being someone that has a professorship should have some type of ethics. How can you trust a person like that? If they’re willing to lie about themselves and where they’re from and who they are, you know? My name is Dale French, I was born and raised here on the Cherokee Indian reservation, and I just don’t approve of that . . .”

John Grant, another Cherokee Indian commented:

“That’s not right at all, she’s lying to the American public by running for public office and claiming a race that she’s not. If she’s claiming that she’s Native American, prove it.”

Johanna Martin, one of the last Cherokee Indians featured in the video remarked:

“In a way it feels like they’re making fun of our heritage because they don’t have any realization of what we went through as a people.”
