Senator Elizabeth Warren released a DNA study where she claims to be 1/512th Native American, but the Boston Globe later issued a correction to the initial report, in fact, the DNA test revealed that “#Fauxcohantas” is actually 1/1,024th Native American. 0.0009765625 or 0.09%. The average American has double the amount, with 0.18% Native American ancestry.
“This means that the DNA test shows that Warren is actually LESS NATIVE AMERICAN than the average American of European ancestry,” said Cornell Law School professor William A. Jacobson on his Legal Insurrection blog.
Big League Politics reported on Monday:
For fun, we looked into Warren’s worst-case scenario – what if she is only 1/1024th Native American? In other words, what if Warren had a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great who was Native American?

Well, 1 divided by 1024 is .00097656, or .09%. That number divided by the 1/16th requirement (.0625 for my readers who are adept at mathematics) comes out to .015625, or only 1.5% of the requirement to be considered Native American today.
On Tuesday morning, Native American Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) called for Elizabeth Warren to apologize to the Cherokee nation, as well as the American public for her continuously lying about her heritage. Mullin is one of two Native American lawmakers in Congress today, with his family still living on Cherokee Indian land.
Rep. Markwayne Mullin On Fox News Tuesday said,
“There was a 2014 study, scientific study, and they said that the average European American walking around is .18% Native American. She’s half of that. So the idea that she continues to double-down on this lie is the most disgusting thing to me. The fact that she’s in the public eye and she continues to use this… it is backfiring on her. What she needs to do is come out and apologize to all of us… Look, every time she’s told this story we’ve come out and proved the story is not even true… It’s gotten to the point that it’s disgusting to me and the rest of Native Americans especially those of us inside Cherokee Nation.”
