    Cherokees Demand Truth: Elizabeth Warren must “pay it forward” by admitting she is not one of them

    Cherokees Demand Truth: Elizabeth Warren must “pay it forward” by admitting she is not one of them

    From Cherokees Demand Truth from Elizabeth Warren (Facebook group here):

    From Polly’s Grandaughter blog:

    “But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.” Elizabeth Warren

    Now she has the nerve to tell other people they need to pay it forward. Is she kidding? There is a tight knit group of American Indian professors in the US. They do what they can to mentor and help one another and they often end up working with and helping tribes. Warren was not part of that group, nor did she ever make any attempt to be part of that group, despite her claim she listed herself as a minority to meet others like herself.

    She has never reached out to tribes or Cherokees to “pay it forward.” She wouldn’t even give the Cherokee women who traveled a long way to meet with her the courtesy of meeting with them.

    Apparently Warren’s way of “paying it forward” is to marginalize Cherokees and other American Indians…

    It is time Elizabeth Warren reviews the documentation of her genealogy and admits she is not Cherokee. Maybe then, and only then, she can find a way to “pay it forward” to Cherokees and other American Indians.

    “TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker and Attorney General Todd Hembree met with President Barack Obama to discuss a matter before the United States Supreme Court that could mean more than $50 million to the Cherokee Nation.”

    William A. Jacobson, I don’t if you saw this or not… but might this not bode well for the chances that the Cherokee Nation will continue to press the issue with Elizabeth Warren? Hell, the way things have been going I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama enacts further executive privilege proclaiming Warren a full blooded Cherokee. Or maybe the long form doc of the Dawes Rolls with Great Great Great Mamau’s name will be miraculously found.

    p.r.o.t.o: the Cherokee Nation will continue to press the issue with Elizabeth Warren?

    The Cherokee Nation is not pressing the issue; just a few individual Cherokees.
