Keller @ Large: Why Warren Shouldn’t Run For President
Native American tribes had no record of membership by Warren, and genealogists were unable to confirm any Native American heritage.
As with more then 3/4 of the country
Mr. Keller did not put his brain in gear before he opened his mouth on Elizabeth Warren’s tribal statement!
I do agree with the rest of his article on why she should not run this time around.
Now to the real facts on the subject.
I have traveled Indian Country many times since my first trip at age six and have met thousands of people calling themselves
Most could not show proof however, it was, for the most part, accepted.
Hundreds of Thousands of
State that one or more of their ancestors was a
No one until now has ever disputed these hundreds of thousands of claim!
In point of fact if their great, great, great, grandmother/grandfather made this clam back in the 1700/1800 hundreds, how could they or I disprove this and why would we wish to?
Warren has received a great deal of criticism since the story first emerged, in large part because no documentation has been found to back up Warren’s claim that she is indeed of Native American ancestry.
No documentation can be found on
“Millions of true Native American”!
Because the first few years of in-door cremation of loved one these cremations were being done
in ‘Wooden Buildings’ and many burnt to the ground along with all records!
At least in the New England Area.
Warren’s great-great-great grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, was referenced as Cherokee Indian on her son William Crawford’s 1894 marriage license application, a 2006 family newsletter showed.
The document itself was not an actual marriage license, and it has not been located, according to genealogists at the New England Historic Genealogical Society.
SO WHAT, WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
Warren also addressed the questions surrounding the lack of documentation in her statement.
“Growing up, my mother and my grandparents and my aunts and uncles often talked about our family’s Native American heritage,
as a kid, I never thought to ask them for documentation- what kid would”?
“But that doesn’t change the fact that it is a part of who I am and part of my family heritage” she said.
In other words, she did not call her ancestors Liars, who would?
Would you call your Grand-Parents Liars?
