Laura there is one other group that was adopted (taken) at birth from Indian mothers. Almost all boys, half white, given birth certificates that were falsified. Born very near reservations and denied there heritage. Children purchased by religious groups to expand their population. It is out there and hidden from view even to those that were handed over. When for example one of those attend collage and ending up in an anthropology class. The instructor just for fun had the class make tooth impressions, then announced we have a Native American in our class. No one responded as the secret was well hidden. Where does that individual fit, after an ethnic identity is proven? This happened all over this country and few if any want tribal membership, just to be accepted that they too are half native and proud of it. Details are not need about the lives and in the case of Ms. Warren why is there such an outrage over something that is so trivial. An individual proud of their heritage and assaulted for it appears to me just racist comments about Indians that is socially acceptable and another national disgrace.
