The question posed here is of little significance from my perspective. Ms. Warren may or may not have direct Indian heritage. I find it admirable that she would identify herself as Native even though lacking tribal formal enrollment. While Mr. Brown has ridiculed Natives. The 236 year history of the United States since being colonized using the Doctrine of Discovery is such that Indian country receives the least of the least of everything. So little, most Indian leaders are now attempting to engage the United Nations for recognition of long term systemic problems no politician is willing to address. I cannot vote in the Massachusetts election, but if I had to make the decision between Ms. Warren and Mr. Brown, I would vote for Ms. Warren. Historically and statistically we (Indian Country) have not had a place at the table, Ms. Warren may be more of a voice of reason for the pressing concerns that afflict Indian Country.
