Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made public the results of a DNA test she took that showed she had Native American ancestry in light of President Donald Trump routinely mocking her as "Pocahontas".

The results, as shared with The Boston Globe, reportedly reveal "strong evidence" the MA senator had a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations.

However the announcement has provoked the ire of the Cherokee Nation, headquartered in Oklahoma, which has accused Ms Warren of "undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage".

Kim TallBear, the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Peoples, Technoscience and Environment at the University of Alberta, issued a statement saying "For Elizabeth Warren to centre a Native American ancestry test as the next move in her fight with Republicans is to make yet another strike - even if unintended - against tribal sovereignty".

To be a Native American, Moya-Smith said that one has to be there for the people and community, and not only when it's most convenient for the individual.

Trump used the nickname "Pocahontas" for Warren during the 2016 presidential campaign after she campaigned with his opponent, Hillary Clinton. In fact, there is a good chance she is even less so. While she was attempting to put this credibility problem away long before she runs for president, she's made it all much, much worse.

"You mean if she gets the nomination, in a debate, where I was going to have her tested?"

Mr Maliki said he was saddened that Australia might violate worldwide law and disrespect a UN Security Council resolution. The embassy move would be yet another sign of increasingly close relations between the two states.

"I'm deeply uncomfortable with what Elizabeth Warren has done here. If I were running her campaign, I would probably do this", said Mr. Messina on MSNBC. Elizabeth Warren of MA over her attempt to refute Trump's attacks on her ancestry.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs discourages the use of DNA tests in trying to prove ancestry from a specific federally recognized tribe - something Warren said she was not attempting to do.

"She needs to. apologize to everybody for what she has done", Porreco said.

Warren said in her video that her ancestry is a matter of family folklore and that she understands that only tribes determine tribal citizenship.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, said he would take a DNA test to see if he were more Native American than Ms. Warren. "I think she's guilty of claiming she's an American Indian but has no proof - and then [is] using it for applications for college and for political reasons". In a news briefing later in Georgia, he answered the Warren question with a new condition: "I'll only do it if I can test her personally, OK?"

Secondly, and with all the evidence proving the exact opposite, Warren still stands by her claim that her parents were forced to elope due to family strife over her mother being Indian. "That will not be something I'll enjoy doing, either".
