The response by the Cherokee Nation is both apt and incredibly amusing. I cannot believe she thought this was going to restore her viability as a presidential candidate.
“Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”
The concept is really not that hard and underlines my case against pan-racial nationalism. DNA says nothing about one’s tribal heritage, because tribe is a subset of nation, which is itself a subset of race. Pan-racial tribalism is even less viable than pan-racial nationalism.
