So, let me get this straight. Elizabeth Warren claims native american ancestry as if she is a part of the native american culture. She gets called out as not native american by Trump who challenges here to take a DNA test. So, she does take the test. The results find that she has an ancestor 6 to 10 generations ago. I think that this guy sums it up pretty well.
". This could support Warren’s claims, though if her ancestor is fully 10 generations back, she would be only 1/1024th Native American, a fact that critics would love to emphasize.
THERE’S NO DNA TEST TO PROVE THAT SOMEONE IS NATIVE AMERICAN
More importantly: who cares? Warren should never have made this claim to begin with. It doesn’t mean anything to possibly have 1/1024 Native American ancestry if she has no ties to Native American culture or politics otherwise. The test might prove she didn’t lie about family history, but it doesn’t tell us anything else useful, and plays into the dangerous ways that people already (wrongly) conflate genetic ancestry with culture."
