A U.S. Senator recently took a DNA test which shows that she has only 1.5% of the required ancestry to be considered Native American.
President Donald J. Trump has often taunted Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), calling her “Pocahontas” for her multiple claims that she is part Cherokee, which she has often claimed in order to gain political clout.
In order clear up this confusion, Warren released the results of a DNA test which show that that she is, at most 1/32nd Native American, and at least 1/1024th Native American, according to the Boston Globe. According to the article, somewhere between six and 10 generations ago, Warren has a Native American ancestor.
We did the math and found that in any scenario, Warren is still not Native American enough to be considered American Indian by any tribe today.
According to The Globe, if Warren’s “great-great-great grandmother was Native American, that puts her at 1/32nd American Indian.” One must be at least 1/16 Native American to be considered American Indian by tribes in the United States today, meaning that she is only meets 50% of the requirement to be considered Native American.
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.
Warren is no more related to Native Americans as any of us are related to Adam and Eve. Democrats are clowning themselves trying to pretend that they belong to minority groups (see: Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke), thus giving them clout within their party, which hates white people.
