Senator Elizabeth Warren Talks About Her Oklahoma Heritage
DES MOINES, Iowa - Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is answering questions about her heritage by pointing to her Oklahoma roots.
The Oklahoma native is considering a run for president.
While talking to a group in Iowa Saturday, Warren addressed controversy over her previous claims of Cherokee ancestry.
"Tribal citizenship is very different from ancestry. I grew up out in Oklahoma, and like a lot of folks out in Oklahoma, we heard the family stories of our ancestry," said Senator Elizabeth Warren.
In October, Warren revealed a DNA test found she does have distant Native American ancestors.
The Cherokee Nation denounced the test as "inappropriate and wrong."
